The Iron Dukes Heritage Society honors alumni and friends who have included Duke Athletics in their estate plans or have made some other type of planned gift to Duke Athletics.  Members are invited to recognition events and are accounted among the university’s most valued supporters.  In addition to gifts made today of cash and other assets, a gift to Duke Athletics designated in your estate or retirement plan may help Duke Athletics reach ambitious campaign goals as we continue to build champions on the field and in the classroom.  Further, our records indicate that 212 alumni, parents, and/or friends have provided for Duke Athletics in their estate. To recognize these people, and those who give this way in the coming years, we created the Iron Dukes Heritage Society.

If you have already included Duke Athletics in your long term plans, we thank you for your generosity and ask that you complete the “Confirmation of Legacy Gift” form and return it to the Iron Dukes office. This form gives us guidance as to your wishes and current gift plans but is kept confidential and does not bind you or your estate in any way. If Duke is not yet in your long term plans, we invite you to consider the many ways in which a planned gift to Duke Athletics can be a useful financial planning tool while helping shape Duke’s future. Many of these gifts can also count toward the Duke Forward campaign goals.
