$9 million pledged so far to support students, patient care and research, and our greater community

President Price announced three new funds set up to help those impacted by COVID-19

The Duke Student Assistance Fund will benefit undergraduate, graduate and professional students in all schools and help alleviate the unexpected burden of student expenses such as airline tickets, temporary housing, food, lost summer employment, technology for online learning and more. 

The Duke Health COVID-19 Response Fund will be used to address the needs of Duke Health patients, caregivers and students impacted by the virus, to expand and accelerate the research underway to combat the virus, and to support emerging areas of greatest need during this pandemic.

The Duke-Durham Fund will provide assistance to area non-profits, small businesses, and community-based organizations to enable them to continue their vital work addressing the immediate needs of local residents and assist in the recovery and renewal of the city that we call home.
