The WIN Difference


WIN’s a community of women philanthropists dedicated to leveraging our resources to address the issues we care about. While our gatherings include a social aspect, conversations are always mission-driven and focused on philanthropic impact.


WIN is comprised of Duke’s top female philanthropists who have made a transformative investment of at least $100,000 in lifetime cumulative support towards the future of Duke. We’re united by our passion for the university, our willingness to give at the highest levels to support its mission and our commitment to influencing its future. Recent alumnae have the opportunity to qualify for WIN at lower tiered levels in conjunction with their 10th and 15th Reunions.


WIN is a network of leaders – CEOs, humanitarians, educators, scholars, scientists, mothers. Members hail from communities around the globe, work in dozens of industries and support myriad causes. What unites every WIN member is our desire to inspire and encourage women to access the highest levels of leadership at Duke and beyond.

What WIN offers 


  • Influence 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 leadership.
  • Join a dynamic philanthropic community of current and emerging alumnae leaders, both locally and nationally.
