A note from the Office of Gift Planning during COVID-19

April 09, 2020 | by Duke Office of Gift Planning

We’re still here for you.

Dear friends,

What a year this month has been! As we all adjust to life during this trying time, we want to let you know that the entire Duke community – alumni, friends, faculty, staff and beyond – is stronger than ever. All facets of the university, including the Office of Gift Planning, continue to operate while adapting to rapidly changing circumstances in our country and around the world. We invite you to visit Duke’s Coronavirus Response website to stay up-to-date on the steps the university is taking to ensure that we are part of the solution.

Your well-being is what’s most important to us. As we live and work under new protocols, we will be flexible and evolve as necessary. We stand ready to talk with you by phone, email or video. Whether you have questions about gift planning or you simply want to talk to a friend, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

These next few weeks and months will be challenging for everyone. We encourage you to support others as you can – your family, friends, neighbors, and programs that help to make your community vibrant, healthy, connected and safe. We are grateful for our Duke family, and we look forward to enjoying time together again very soon.
