The Duke-Durham Leadership Giving Society celebrates the long-standing connections between Duke and Durham and invites Duke employees to join that tradition through leadership-level gifts to Doing Good in the Neighborhood.

Partnerships between Duke University, Duke University Health System, and the schools, nonprofits and community organizations of Durham are historic and continue to deepen. The Duke-Durham Leadership Giving Society is a way for Duke employees to shape that growing commitment and to ensure its ongoing vitality through community-based philanthropy.

Your combined gift to Doing Good in the Neighborhood — through Duke Community Giving, United Way of the Greater Triangle, or both — determines your giving level.
