Duke Class of 2019

Duke Class of 2019: Senior Giving Challenge

Congratulations, Class of 2019!! You’re almost there!! Won’t you choose the Duke Lemur Center as a recipient of your Senior Class Gift? We’d be so honored to put your donation to work, caring for your endangered and amazing primate cousins here in Duke forest AND in Madagascar! Give through the links below to be eligible for special drawings we’re offering to seniors and stay posted on our Facebook page!

Here are special giving links for seniors and several ways you can support the Duke Lemur Center with a tax-deductible donation:

Care for lemurs at the Duke Lemur Center

If you want to put your investment into the care and feeding of the approximately 240 lemurs at the Duke Lemur Center, you can make a donation in any amount to the Lemur Care/Adopt a Lemur Program, or you can symbolically adopt Halley, a black and white ruffed lemur, and receive quarterly updates on her! You can choose the adoption WITH or WITHOUT the plushie (a $5 premium is required if you choose the plushie).

This special discounted adoption + plushie promotion is available to DUKE SENIORS only!

CLICK HERE to adopt black and white ruffed lemur Halley with huggable plush lemur ($55)! ($50 donation + $5 premium; plush lemur pictured below with adoption packet.) The plushie and adoption packet will be mailed to your billing address unless you provide an alternate shipping address in the comments section asking “Is there anything else you want to share with Duke today?”

CLICK HERE to adopt black and white ruffed lemur Halley ($50 donation)! Your adoption packet will be mailed to your billing address unless you provide an alternate shipping address in the comments section asking “Is there anything else you want to share with Duke today?”

CLICK HERE to make a donation in any amount to the DLC's Adopt a Lemur program, which helps pay for lemur care, housing, and veterinary supplies! (Please note that donations under $50 do not include an adoption packet.)

Send a LEMURS + ROSES valentine

Looking for a heartwarming Valentine's Day gift for someone you care about? Send a LEMURS + ROSES valentine!

CLICK HERE to submit your order and make a donation to the DLC’s unrestricted donations fund between now and February 13, and we’ll send a valentine message to a gift recipient of your choice on Valentine's Day (February 14)! We’re devoting all donations raised through this promotion to special items we’re in need of, so learn more and stay tuned to our progress on the DLC's Facebook page.

Make a difference in Madagascar

If Madagascar -- lemurs’ only natural habitat -- and its mind-blowing biodiversity is something you want to help protect not only for lemurs, but for the sake of its importance in the world, invest in our Madagascar Conservation Programs. You choose the gift amount!

Keep diggin' our fossils

If fossils have ever been “your thing,” then you will love the DLC’s Division of Fossil Primates! Help us protect expand, digitize, and share this unique collection of lemur and primate fossils with students and researchers around the world. You choose the amount!

… Or, help all areas of our work!

Can’t decide? Or do you just love everything we do? Unrestricted donations are a BIG deal to the DLC’s operating budget. They help us to meet priority needs that are not otherwise covered by grants and funding by Duke. Click on the UNRESTRICTED GIFT button below, and your investment will touch all areas of the DLC’s work!

Check out our special giving societies, too. We’d love to add you to our list of closest friends and donors at some point in your future! We’ll be here and hope you will come back to visit with friends and family in the coming years.

Congratulations, Class of 2019!
