Pratt Parents Annual Fund Campaign
Parents of Pratt students, past and present, know what a Duke Engineering education can mean to the future success of their child. The generosity of our parents has a lasting impact on today’s students and generations to come. We consider you part of the Duke family and recognize that the support you provide is critical to the school’s on-going success.
The Annual Fund is essential to carrying out our mission to educate students as leaders in service to society. Whether it’s building a rainwater harvesting system in Uganda or building custom medical devices for disabled children living in Durham, NC, this mission requires significant resources beyond that covered by tuition alone. These opportunities prepare Duke engineers to face important societal challenges both locally and globally.
The Duke Parents Committee has 300+ members whose enthusiasm and commitment fuel the success of the Duke Parents Program. Members enjoy developing a connection with the university and with each other, and many parent volunteers choose to stay active on the committee even after their children graduate.
