The mission of the Iron Dukes is to help provide the resources necessary to enrich the lives of Duke student-athletes as they strive to be champions in the classroom and at the highest level of athletic competition, while preparing them to be champions in life by engaging the mind, elevating the spirit, and stimulating the best effort for all.
The Iron Dukes is the fundraising arm for Duke Athletics, providing an opportunity for alumni, friends, other individuals or groups to support Duke Athletics. The Iron Dukes provides student-athlete scholarships, improvements to facilities, and operation and maintenance budgets for all 27 varsity sports.
We can continue to honor our proud winning tradition of the past as we build great Blue Devil teams for the future, but we need you on our team. Help us strengthen the heart of one of the premier academic and athletic institutions in the country. Your generosity will afford outstanding young student-athletes the opportunity to pursue a Duke education while competing at the highest level.
