Maybe not forever young, but definitely Forever Duke

Welcome to Duke Next G.E.N.— a program to serve the next generation of philanthropic and volunteer leaders as they Give, Engage, and Network. Duke was founded on the belief that there is power in numbers and that every gift matters when it comes to the collective impact of philanthropy.

You, as the most recent graduates, have the power to shape the future of Duke.

What difference does your dollar make?

A huge difference when combined with thousands of others. Without the collective generosity of a broad community, Duke would not exist today.

Your gift to a Duke Annual Fund is important. Why?

Because gifts of all sizes add up. That’s how annual funds work! It takes thousands of donors giving to make a collective impact so that Duke can cover the many costs that simply aren’t met by tuition income and other sources of revenue.
