All gifts count toward Duke Forward, a seven-year fundraising campaign that supports Duke's 10 schools. The campaign has reached $2.17 billion of its $3.25 billion goal.
"On behalf of the university, I want to express how grateful we are for the extraordinary support we’ve received this year,” President Richard H. Brodhead said in a statement. “The generosity of Duke alumni and friends expands the potential of what Duke can do – creating transformative opportunities for our stellar faculty and students and providing resources for them to continue engaging with global problems.”
The single-largest gift in 2013-14 came from alumni J. Michael and Christine Pearson. The couple donated $30 million to the Pratt School of Engineering to advance engineering and science education.
