2015-2016 Fuqua Annual Fund Progress to Goal

The Fuqua Annual Fund has passed the halfway mark and is picking up speed. With $2.3 million raised toward our 2015-2016 goal of $4.3 million, we are grateful to the alumni and friends who have made gifts thus far. Your support, combined with the generosity of many alumni, fuels the programs and student experiences that make Fuqua exceptional. Gifts large or small truly do make a difference!

March Match-ness

March Madness is upon us, and we're all hoping for a big Duke win on the court. Help the Fuqua Annual Fund win big, too, by applying for a corporate matching gift. Many companies and foundations will match the value of charitable gifts made by employees and their spouses, board members, and retirees, doubling or even tripling the value of your gift. To find out if your company has a matching gift program, check Duke's matching gift database. Go, Team Fuqua!
