As part of The Duke Endowment’s yearlong centennial celebration, the Endowment is touring a traveling exhibit throughout North Carolina and South Carolina to educate and engage the public about the vision of its founder, James B. Duke, and a century of progress he made possible.
Through interactive content panels and digital experiences, visitors learn how Mr. Duke and The Duke Endowment helped shape the Carolinas and how Mr. Duke’s generosity continues to support the region today. It also features stories of the Endowment’s grantees through the years.
The exhibit was created through a collaboration between The Duke Endowment and Conner Prairie-a leader in creating innovative and engaging museum experiences.
Based in Charlotte and established in 1924 by industrialist and philanthropist James B. Duke, The Duke Endowment is a private foundation that strengthens communities in North Carolina and South Carolina by nurturing children, promoting health, educating minds and enriching spirits. Since its founding, it has distributed $4.5 billion in grants. The Endowment shares a name with Duke University and Duke Energy, but all are separate organizations.
