The Duke Tower Society honors alumni and friends who have included Duke in their estate or retirement plans or have made some other type of planned gift to Duke.
As a member of the Duke Tower Society, you will receive a Tower Society certificate, will be invited to a special luncheon on campus each year, occasional regional events, and can elect to receive our quarterly Duke Blueprints e-newsletter.
Duke is the university we know today because James Buchanan Duke had the foresight and great expectations for a college he cared for and a keen sense of how to manage his assets to ensure his family’s financial well-being. He defined his bequest during his lifetime, and it produced what he had planned. You, too, can have a meaningful impact on the future of this university by supporting Duke with a planned gift. There is no question that such giving is as vital to the university’s future as it was in its past.
If you have planned an estate or life income gift to benefit Duke, we would be honored to welcome you into to the Duke Tower Society. Please contact us for more information.
