How you can support TIP
The Duke University Talent Identification Program (Duke TIP) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to serving academically gifted youth. Gifts from supporters allow Duke TIP to continue our work with gifted youth, their families, and educators through scholarships and expanded program offerings.
Friends of Duke TIP
With a small endowment and a young alumni constituency, Duke TIP must rely on the annual financial support of generous alumni, parents, friends, foundations, and corporations. Gifts of all levels to the Friends of Duke TIP annual fund play an invaluable role in providing financial assistance to academically-qualified students who who would not otherwise benefit from our programs, talent searches, and educational products. Your charitable gift, regardless of the size, helps TIP students have one of the best experiences of their lives. To contribute: www.gifts.duke.edu/tip
TIP Star Teacher Gift Club
The TIP Star Teacher Gift Club for alumni and parents honors an exceptional teacher from the TIP experience who has had a significant impact on your son or daughter's educational experience. Go to the Duke University secure giving site and designate your TIP Star Teacher.
Duke TIP is grateful to the many individuals who help support its educational mission. If you wish to provide a Duke TIP named scholarship to attend a Summer Studies Program, we will identify an academically qualified student who would not otherwise have the financial resources to experience TIP. A named scholarship is established with an annual minimum gift of $4,000 for the summer of 2013.
