 About The Duke Endowment

Since 1924, The Duke Endowment has worked to help people and strengthen communities in North Carolina and South Carolina by nurturing children, promoting health, educating minds and enriching spirits. Located in Charlotte, N.C., the Endowment seeks to fulfill the visionary genius and innovative legacy of James Buchanan Duke, one of the great industrialists and philanthropists of the 20th century. With assets of $5.5 billion in 2021, the Endowment is one of the nation’s largest 501(c)(3) private foundations. It shares a name with Duke University and Duke Energy, but all are separate organizations. In 2015, the Endowment moved to a state of the art building that increased capacity to support our mission, as it is available for grantees to use for events and meetings. On December 11, 2024, The Duke Endowment will celebrate 100 years, achieving a milestone very few private foundations reach.
