— Duke University is getting a helping hand when it comes to improving education on its campus. A wealthy Texas couple has promised to fork out $10 million dollars to the school.

The gift will be the largest donation every received by Duke.

The bulk of the money is a matching grant, which means the school will have to raise money in order to spend the donation.
