Duke School Foundation Makes a Difference!
Duke School Foundation, Inc. was established in 2004 to provide a tax-exempt opportunity for individuals and businesses to contribute financially to the Duke School. The Foundation is a community based organization that exists to build, maintain, and promote excellence in education. By working through partnerships with community supporters, the Foundation’s mission is to generate interest in and provide financial support for the future of the Duke School. The Foundation provides educational opportunities to supplement the learning process for students such as financing field trips/competitions. The Foundation also hosts a competitive process among teachers to provide additional funds for necessary expenditures that are not currently funded by the school. The generosities of individuals and businesses have helped the Duke School continue its tradition of excellence. The Tiger Band, the football program, and the restoration of baseball and softball fields have been made possible by contributions, to name a few. The Board of Trustees of the Duke School Foundation extends a heart felt “Thank you!” to those who have contributed thus far and to those who may be considering a donation!
