Make your senior donation. Use it to Celebrate a mentor.

About Senior Giving Challenge

The Senior Giving Challenge committee partners with the Duke Annual Fund to raise awareness in the senior class about the role of philanthropy in the Duke experience, and to encourage seniors to make a donation of any amount to any area at Duke before they graduate.

A significant amount of financial aid, faculty support, classroom upgrades as well as research and program costs are made by possible by philanthropic donations.

Make Your Donation

  1. Any amount: What donation amount is meaningful to you? Consider $20.20 to honor your class year. Donations $100+ make you a Senior Leadership Donor. Don’t let the amount be a barrier – even $1 counts! Give via credit card, flex, or the Duke Mobile App with Apple Pay/Google Pay.
  2. Any area at Duke: What areas at Duke are important to you? Designate your donation where you want to make an impact. At a loss? Consider one of the Annual Funds to support innovative programs, faculty research projects, and hands-on learning opportunities.
  3. Honor a mentor: Consider making your donation in honor of someone who has made a difference in your Duke experience. Donors and their honorees will be invited to the Celebrating Mentors reception. (Donation amounts are private.)

Senior Giving Challenge will host special events for donors throughout the year – Senior Midnight Breakfast, Senior Week, Chapel Climbs, Celebrating Mentors, etc.!
