We invite you to support transforming ministry at Duke Divinity School. The Divinity School can accept donations via many different methods:
You may make a gift online via our secure giving website at https://www.gifts.duke.edu/divinity.
Give by Mail
The Duke University Office of Alumni & Development Records receives all gifts on behalf of the Divinity School. The check should be made payable to Duke Divinity School. Please write the area or designation of your gift in the memo section or include a letter. Then, mail your donation to: Alumni & Development Records Duke University, Box 90581, Durham, NC 27708-0581. For a donation sent via an overnight mailing service, send to: Alumni & Development Records Duke University, 700 W. Main St., Suite #110, Durham, NC 27701.
Give by Phone
In order to make your gift by phone, please call (919) 684.2338. Office hours are 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Eastern time.
Give by Payroll Deduction
Divinity School and Duke University employees are eligible to make charitable contributions to Duke via payroll deduction. You may choose any amount of deduction over $5.00, and the gifts can be established for any duration of at least three pay periods. At any time, a payroll deduction can be changed or stopped by contacting Susan Hutchins in Alumni & Development Records at (919) 684-2338. To sign up, simply complete the form online and return it to Alumni & Development Records at Box 90581 Durham, NC 27708-0581.
Give by Bank Draft
Through electronic bank draft, you can spread the cost of your support over the course of a year by authorizing your bank to transfer a monthly amount to Duke Divinity School. Please email Deborah Irby at Duke Gift Records to receive the form, which you can return with a voided check.
Although outright gifts provide vital resources for the university today, deferred gifts help insure Duke Divinity School's future. Giving through estate plans may be particularly suitable for individuals who would like to provide significant support for Duke Divinity School but need income from their assets during their lifetime. Please let us know if you have included Duke Divinity School in your long-term plans. You can complete a confidential Confirmation of Legacy Gift Form (pdf), or feel free to contact our staff with any questions you may have.
Give Mutual Funds or Stocks
You may make a gift of stocks, bonds, or mutual funds. Please download detailed instructions for making your gift of stock to Duke Divinity School. For specific questions, contact the Alumni & Development Records Office via e-mail at email@example.com or via telephone at (919) 684-2338.
To see if your employer (or your spouse's employer) has a matching gift program, visit http://dukeforward.duke.edu/ways-to-give/matching-gifts. If your company is eligible, request a matching gift form from your employer, and send it completed and signed with your gift.
If you would like to donate personal property to Duke, please contact Alumni and Development Records at (919) 684-2338. Some gifts require appraisal or advance approval in order to be accepted. Examples of gifts of property include tickets to athletic events, rare books, art work, computer hardware and software, and laboratory equipment.
All gifts of real estate require prior approval by the university. A gift of real estate may be a principal residence or vacation home, farm, commercial building, subdivision lot, or unimproved land. The gift may be the entire property or a fractional interest in the property. Duke's Office of Gift Planning can walk you through the approval process. Learn more.
Please contact External Relations at (919) 660-3456 for help planning your gift.
Revealing the Kingdom of Heaven
"From two years in United Methodist mission work to two years in the Peace Corps, God has revealed the kingdom of heaven to me in multiple settings. The next place I hope to see that kingdom is here in Durham. But I wouldn't be here, were it not for the generous scholarships given to students like me. Thank you for helping us on the next steps of our journey." —Sarah Martindell, D’15
