The Iron Dukes Annual Fund is essential to the current and long-term success of Duke Athletics.  Due to the high cost of educating a Duke student, increased annual support is critical for the university to continue to offer competitive scholarship opportunities.  With a single scholarship costing over $60,000, Duke’s athletic expenditures add up quickly.  The athletics endowment covers only a fraction of the scholarship costs, so annual gifts to the Iron Dukes help to make up the difference.  The Iron Dukes Annual Fund has a direct impact on ‘the experience of a lifetime’ that is afforded to some 670 student-athletes, representing Duke’s 26 varsity teams.  We encourage all athletics donors to make annual giving a priority.
