Philanthropy Roundtable - James B. Duke & the Duke Endowment

"Born on a small homestead, and interred in the chapel of the university that bears his name, [James B.] Duke was a man of the Carolinas... Unlike Carnegie and Rockefeller, Duke focused his largesse in just two states—to give elsewhere, he thought, “would be productive of less good by reason of attempting too much.”...In the 86 years since its creation, the Duke Endowment has distributed more than $2.7 billion."
