DURHAM, N.C. -- The 2010 Men’s Lacrosse National Championship. The 1986 Men’s Soccer National Championship. The 2001 Women’s Golf Individual National Championship. The 2010 Men’s Basketball National Championship. All of these championship events in Duke’s athletic history were won by one – one point, one goal, one stroke, one basket.
It is because of your support that Duke student-athletes have the opportunities to be champions in competition and in the classroom. The 2012-13 year was a championship year for the Iron Dukes Annual Fund with $13.5 million raised, and while we are extremely proud of the past year’s accomplishments, we cannot become complacent. In the midst of the Duke Forward Campaign, we are charged with a goal of $250 million to address rising scholarship costs and some much needed renovations to our athletic facilities. In an effort to reach this goal and move Duke Athletics forward, we are launching the 2013-14 Iron Dukes Membership Drive – “Won by One” - to identify new Iron Dukes.
The mission of our Won by One campaign is to help strengthen the foundation of the Iron Dukes by building our membership base throughout the state, country, and world. To have a successful membership drive and continue on our trajectory of excellence, we need your help. We are asking you to help identify, recruit, and signup prospective Iron Duke members, one by one.
Below, you will find a link to our Won by One form. This form explains how if each current member refers just one new Iron Duke our program can win; one by one our membership will rise from seventh to third in the ACC. You can find more information regarding the membership drive and the Iron Dukes on our website at www.GoDuke.com/IronDukes. In the spirit of winning, prizes will be awarded and there will be champions based on referral numbers. Be sure to keep up with your membership drive standings online. With the additional support provided through the Won by One campaign, all of our student-athletes will win and you can too.
Thank you for all that you do for the Iron Dukes. The success of Duke Athletics would not be possible without your help. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or needs you may have. Go Duke!
