Class of 2018: Supporting Future Students

Congratulations, Class of 2018 on all of your accomplishments while obtaining your medical education at Duke!  As we celebrate and prepare for our graduation from medical school and the beginning of our lives as Duke doctors and alumni, let us come together one last time as a class and make a powerful statement about what being a Duke medical student has meant to us.  Giving back is part of the Duke experience — it truly would not be the same place without it. 

The Graduating Class Gift Campaign allows us to show appreciation for the top-tier medical education we received and to experience the satisfaction of giving and to honor our new crop of med students by raising funds to support the Medical Scholarship Fund.


  • Every gift (even $1.00) makes a difference and counts towards our overall goal of 100% participation!
  • Funds raised directly benefit Duke medical students
  • Your entire pledge counts towards our class gift total

Special opportunity this year:

All who make a minimum gift of $20.18 will be invited to join the Davison Club—Davison Club members are invited to a variety of special alumni events throughout the year and are recognized as leadership donors. Your name will be included on the donor wall in the Trent Semans Center and on our online honor roll. You will also receive a Duke Medicine/Davison Club lapel pin to wear proudly. 

Make your gift here.

Let's Graduate and Make Our Gift!

What is the Graduating Class Gift Campaign?

What is the Graduating Class Gift Campaign?

Every year, the fourth year/graduating medical students come together to make a monetary contribution to the School of Medicine. Known collectively as the ‘class gift,’ students typically give an amount representing their graduating year ($20.18), but gift sizes can vary. Funds raised directly benefit future students by supporting the Medical Scholarship Fund.

How can I participate?

Make your gift early and spread the word! Make your gift here or mail your pledge form
Everyone who makes a donation (any amount) will be included on the Class of 2018 Honor Roll, which is displayed on this website (see below).
