Move Duke Athletics Forward
Duke is known for building champions on and off the courts and fields. Now is the time to make the investments that will drive our future success. The success of Duke’s 671 student-athletes both in the classroom and on the playing field would not be possible without the support of over 9,000 Iron Dukes members. This passion for Duke University has afforded endless opportunities to terrific young men and women and has made Duke Athletics the benchmark for prestige, integrity, and accomplishment.

Maintaining Duke’s level of competition in the complex world of intercollegiate athletics requires building world-class facilities, hiring and retaining winning coaches, paying for ever-increasing student financial aid costs, and funding individual sport programs.
During the university’s comprehensive campaign, we hope to transform the heart of our athletics complex—without altering the “indoor” of Cameron Indoor—and to make the Blue Devil experience even more exciting for players, our student body, and all of our fans.
An endowment gift is one of the most powerful ways to help Duke Athletics. Endowments can be established to sustain coaching positions, scholarships, or the operating needs of any of our 26 varsity sports.
Annual gifts to the Iron Dukes afford outstanding student-athletes the opportunity to pursue a Duke education while competing at the highest level. Even as we raise support for endowment and our ambitious facility plans, we encourage all athletics donors to make annual giving a priority. The Iron Dukes Annual Fund makes up the difference between endowments to help with vital operating support. The Iron Dukes Varsity Club provides essential resources for Duke’s 26 varsity sports.
