Support for our undergraduate, graduate, and professional school students crosses all three themes of the campaign, and fundraising priorities related to undergraduate education represent about 40 percent of our goal.

The three themes above represent the shared values and vision of leaders across the university.  Below is a breakdown of our $3.25 billion goal by school and unit:

Trinity College of Arts & Sciences $435M

Approximately one-third of our campaign will add permanent funding to the university’s endowment. As part of the endowment goal, we hope to raise $400 million for new endowed scholarships and fellowships and $250 million for more than 100 new endowed faculty chairs, visiting professorships, and professors of practice.  In addition, the vision of the campaign will require significant ongoing support from Duke’s many Annual Fund donors.  Below is a breakdown of the $3.25 billion campaign goal by purpose:
