Pledge Donor

Support The Dukes Foundation Mentoring Program by making a pledge!

As a pledge donor of The Dukes Foundation Mentoring Program, you will provide continuous year-round support for our Mentees. There are 3 ways to give at a level that fits your budget. It’s a quick and easy.

Reliable monthly support can help us make all the difference in in the lives of our Youth. It also enables us to prepare and implement changes in services and provide long-term solutions. Monthly giving is also more cost-effective, lowering administrative costs.

The Pledge Program gives you three options to choose from:

  • You can make automatic gifts from your credit card account.
  • You can set up an automatic electronic funds transfer.
  • You can choose to receive a set of donation envelopes to mail
    in on a monthly or quarterly basis.

You tell us how much you want to pledge each month or quarter and we will arrange to have your gift automatically transferred from your bank or credit card account. Your gift goes directly to the Mentoring Program, where it can be put to work immediately, saving time, paper and postage.

Monthly giving lasts as long as you wish. If you would like to cancel your pledge, just let us know in writing 14 business days before your next scheduled payment date and we’ll take care of it immediately. Your monthly bank statement will show the date and the amount of the transfer. In addition, we will send you a year-end statement listing your contributions for tax or other purposes.

As a treasured Supporter of this program, you will continue to receive our newsletter and notices about events. You will not receive any further letters from us requesting financial donations.


To enroll or find out more about this easy way to give, contact us at dukesfoundation@dukesfoundation.org . No matter how you choose to give, we thank you for considering our pledge program.
