Shingleton Society Overview


The Shingleton Society

The Shingleton Society honors the generosity of those who, during a fiscal year (July 1 through June 30) have made a gift of $1,000 or more. The impact of this philanthropy is significant as Duke Cancer Institute continues its quest to extend and improve the lives of all people with cancer. The Shingleton Society pays tribute to William W. Shingleton, MD, the founding director of Duke Comprehensive Cancer Center, now known as Duke Cancer Institute.

Shingleton Society donors fuel groundbreaking breakthroughs at Duke. This committed group of annual donors stand shoulder-to-shoulder with world-class physicians, researchers, and caregivers—all dedicated to improving the lives of those affected by cancer. We are grateful to every donor who has chosen to partner with us in our quest to change the rules on cancer. With your support we are moving further, faster and with greater purpose.
