Calling All 2004-2018 Duke Young Alumni -- The 5th Tobacco Road Tzedakah Cup Challenge Starts NOW! 

While our Blue Devils go head-to-head with Carolina on the court, we are facing their Hillel in a fundraising challenge to see who can get the most young alumni showing support for Jewish Life on campus.

The winner will be the school that gets the most $18+ donors—CLICK HERE TO MAKE IT DUKE! 
Last year, we lost by just 9 donors... and it's payback time. Let's get that trophy back in its rightful place.

On the fence? Liz Heyman Winter, T’03, so wants to crush UNC, that she will match every gift of $18+ from a new or lapsed donor. So if you've never given before, or haven't in a while, now's the time!

The rule book:

  • Gifts must be made between 12:00 a.m. on February 18 and 11:59 p.m. on March 11, 2019 (pledges do not count toward total)
  • Donors must be Class of 2004-2018 Duke alumni
  • Donations must be for $18 or more to count toward official participation tallies
  • For married alumni couples to be counted as two donations, gift must total $36 or more
  • All $18+ gifts from new or lapsed donors will be matched dollar-for-dollar by a Duke alumna
  • Whichever school gets more eligible donors wins
  • The winning school gets the TRTC trophy 
  • Donations can be made online here

Click here to show your support, pay it forward, and crush our arch-rivals. Win-win-win. Be sure to follow the TRTC score on the Jewish Life at Duke Facebook page.
