    My parents taught me that when you believe in something or somebody you give whatever you can—mind, body, and soul (and wallet if possible)—in support.

    I hope we continue to inspire the next generation of critical thinkers, life-time learners, and visionary leaders to use their strengths to contribute to society.

    My greatest hope for Duke is that it continues to be a University where the students are able to explore their imaginations and intellect; express their concerns about the ever-changing world around them; and conquer their fears, misgivings, and shortcomings so that they continue progressing and looking forward.

Make a Gift

Help activate the Duke WIN Scholarship for undergraduate women leaders. Make a gift of any amount by June 30, 2017, and you will be part of a first-of-its-kind collective giving opportunity seeking to raise $250,000 to activate a new need-based financial aid scholarship.

Lead. Give. Inspire.

At Duke, as in much of higher education, women have not gained equal footing with men in influential volunteer leadership positions and as high-impact philanthropists.

We can’t harness our full potential without the rich perspectives, diverse skills, and financial resources women bring to the table.

WIN offers membership to women who have given $100k+ in cumulative lifetime giving and who are engaged with the university through their volunteer and financial support. WIN members’ experiences and perspectives will help Duke develop meaningful, high-impact philanthropy and leadership opportunities for current and prospective WIN members.



My Giving Story: Danielle Squires

Duke Women's Impact Network: Danielle Squires '02 is a leadership council member of Duke Women's Impact Network, a new initiative aimed at increasing the number of women serving in volunteer leadership roles and shaping Duke's future through their philanthropic influence.

The Big Picture

Women’s growing social, professional, and economic power is rapidly changing the world. As leaders, their management styles are producing higher performance metrics. As household breadwinners and purchasing decision-makers, they are becoming powerful philanthropists. 

 
How Women Lead

You Can Help Duke WIN.

Women are essential to Duke’s leadership, both strategically and financially. WIN members will help Duke achieve three interconnected and complementary goals:

  • Strengthen the pipeline of women for service on Duke’s volunteer leadership boards
  • Maximize alumnae giving to bring women’s philanthropic support in line with men’s, ensuring that they are equally valued and influential in the university’s trajectory 
  • Enhance the way Duke cultivates and engages women for volunteer and financial leadership at the highest levels, incorporating emerging national research on gender differences in philanthropy and through ongoing conversations with our alumnae
 

Benefits of Membership

  • Gain access to a dynamic network of current and emerging alumnae leaders and Duke supporters, both locally and nationally
  • Shape the future of women’s volunteer and philanthropic leadership at Duke by helping to build a robust, multigenerational pipeline of women seeking deeper engagement and influence 
  • Receive exclusive invitations to members-only events with alumnae, faculty, and administrators
  • Prepare for other volunteer leadership roles in the Duke community
  • Help design and participate in WIN-branded educational opportunities that align with our themes of “Lead. Give. Inspire.,” such as training for board service, financial strategies for different life stages, and creating a family legacy of giving and service

Campus-wide Support

An Internal Steering Committee made up of senior administrators and faculty members from across the university and a Leadership Council consisting of current alumnae leaders and donors are responsible for leading the wider alumnae network. 

WIN has the support of President Richard H. Brodhead; the Board of Trustees; senior administrators and faculty members from across Duke’s undergraduate, graduate, and professional schools; Student Affairs; Duke Libraries; the Duke Alumni Association; and many other campus partners.
