Duke Community Giving Categories

Donors can support local schools, nonprofits and community-based organizations that benefit from the Community Care Fund, Health, Neighborhoods, Schools, and Youth Empowerment categories. Because Duke covers overhead and administrative costs, every dollar of your donation to these categories goes directly to local organizations.

When natural disasters hit our state, Duke employees are ready to help. Employee donations to the Emergency Relief Fund are collected and directed to the North Carolina Disaster Relief Fund. These funds, managed by the United Way of North Carolina, help families in need after a natural disaster.


United Way of the Greater Triangle

Employees donations to United Way of the Greater Triangle go toward the organization’s mission to eradicate poverty and increase social mobility through the power of partnerships. The United Way of the Greater Triangle serves organizations across four counties – Durham, Wake, Orange and Johnston. Since Duke is accepting United Way donations through Duke payroll deduction, there are no administrative or processing fees. Employees may sign up for and manage their payroll deduction to UWGT through Duke@Work.

*Donor names and Duke department may be used by Duke University and the Duke Office of Durham and Community Affairs for public acknowledgement of gifts to the Doing Good campaign.
