In-kind Donations

Thank you for your interest in donating an auction item to the Duke Lemur Center! Your in-kind donation will be considered as an auction item or as part of an auction package to raise funds for the Lemur Center through our annual fall gala. Any items that we are unable to use during the event may be used during the following year as drawing items or door prizes at Lemur Center events, or as special incentives and awards for the Duke Lemur Center’s hard-working volunteers, interns, students, and animal care and education staff.

Donors of items with an estimated value of $500 or more may be recognized as sponsors on the sponsorship page of our website.

Please complete the form below to register your item/items. Thank you for your help in this very special way!

If you do not receive a confirmation email following submission of your form, please notify mary.paisley@duke.edu.
