Giving Levels & Benefits
In addition to the intrinsic benefits, Duke Athletics has composed a schedule of tangible benefits afforded to those supporters giving at specified levels. While these benefits can be incentives for giving, supporters should not lose sight of the principal mission of the Iron Dukes – to provide opportunities through scholarship support for Duke student-athletes. The following table outlines the tangible benefits available to Iron Dukes supporters.
Certain benefits require Iron Dukes Annual Fund unrestricted donations, whereas other benefits are available for all athletics contributions. In the chart below, benefits indicated by a Duke Blue D are available for any annual gift at the specified levels. Benefits noted by the black D require the specified level of Iron Dukes Annual Fund unrestricted support.
Priority consideration for all season and individual ticket orders, as well as season and individual game parking passes, is given to all Iron Dukes. Ticket and parking pass priority is determined by annual giving level, record of cumulative giving and availability. Projected levels for ticket allocation are only projections. They DO NOT guarantee the right to purchase tickets. Post-season bowl and NCAA Tournament ticket purchases are allocated by priority and availability.
Gifts and pledges made between July 1, 2016 and June 25, 2017 entitle you to an Iron Dukes membership for the 2016-17 fiscal year.
Duke fans from 9th grade to age 22 are eligible for our Young Iron Dukes program, while kids through the 8th grade are eligible for membership in the Junior Iron Dukes. Check out more information on the Young and Junior Iron Dukes programs.
