Why do people choose to contribute their time and resources to Duke Doing Good? The reasons are as varied as the schools, nonprofits and neighborhoods that benefit from these gifts.
DG giving category: Community Care Fund
Why do you give specifically to the Community Care Fund?
I am very committed to putting my money where my heart is, and that is where my heart is. The Community Care Fund supports our community and the environment. I think environmental issues disproportionately affect those in underrepresented groups, which usually these kinds of funds will help.
What does it mean to you to be a part of Doing Good in the Neighborhood?
I’m just really proud of the people that I work with that want to come together and create possibilities within our community, and to come together and not just talk about it but come together with money and to contribute to a greater good. I’m very proud to be a part of it.
