Your participation counts! Help us finish the Duke Forward Campaign strong!
The seven-year, university-wide Duke Forward campaign ends on June 30th and – thanks to donors like you – the Nicholas School is closing in on our $100 million campaign goal. Recently, we kicked off a $25 million financial aid initiative Forging Future Leaders Together that will extend beyond the campaign’s end, and many of you quickly responded with your support for this important effort to increase access and opportunity for deserving students. (We even received an anonymous gift of $1 million to get things rolling!) Click here to learn more.
