Checks should be made payable to “Duke University” with a note in the memo section or an accompanying cover letter specifying your desire to support the Duke University Libraries. If your check is a pledge payment, please indicate that as well. Please do not send or deliver currency.
Electronic Bank Drafts
Scheduled monthly gifts of electronic bank drafts can be made to the Duke University Libraries without writing a check or completing a credit card transaction.

Gifts of Tangible Personal Property
Gifts of Tangible Personal Property related to the “charitable purpose” of the Libraries may be eligible for a deduction of the asset’s full market value. Some gifts may require appraisal or advance approval in order to be accepted. Please contact the Libraries’ Development Office before making the gift to learn about its suitability and the required appraisal procedures.
Planned Gift, including IRA Rollover
A charitable IRA rollover allows donors age 70½ or older to make annual, tax-free gifts of up to $100,000 to Duke or other qualified charities from their individual retirement accounts. Such charitable IRA rollover gifts may also count toward a donor's required minimum distribution for the year. Find out about this and other planned giving options at the University’s Gift Planning web site.
Matching Gift programs
Some employers will match the gifts their employees and their spouses, board members, and retirees make to the Libraries. Matching Gift programs and forms are typically available in the human resources offices of companies. Please let us know if you want us to check your company’s program.
