Promotion Toolkit

On December 11, 2024, The Duke Endowment will celebrate its 100th anniversary, achieving a milestone reached by very few private foundations. We will mark the occasion in many ways, including a yearlong storytelling project exploring the work of our grantees and partners.

We would like these stories of dedication and impact to reach as many people as possible. Will you help us spread the word?

Participation is easy with these readily accessible tools:

  • Talking points, to familiarize yourself with the work of the Endowment and the centennial celebration.
  • A press release template, allowing you to share with the media the good and important work you are doing, and how the Endowment is partnering in your efforts.
  • Email and social media templates to share your work as an Endowment grantee, as well as our work together, with your personal and organizational networks.
  • An opportunity for submitting a guest blog post that further reinforces our shared commitment to the Carolinas.
  • Logo files and brand standards so our efforts are visually aligned and coordinated.
  • In addition to our traveling exhibit, we’re excited to offer a link to our virtual exhibit that mirrors this physical exhibit and that anyone can access. The virtual exhibit offers an engaging opportunity to explore our history and impact today. You can share this digital experience on your website or social platforms with these promotional resources. If you have questions about how to link the virtual exhibit to your website and/or if you are interested in hosting the physical exhibit in 2025, please contact Shaheen Towles at [email protected].

The Endowment sees this centennial year as an opportunity to highlight the pivotal role our grantees and partners play in fulfilling James B. Duke’s enduring commitment to improving lives in the Carolinas. Thank you for helping us get the word out, and for all you do to carry his legacy and mission forward.
