Who We Are

Financials & Governance

The Doris Duke Foundation (DDF) was established in 1996 by Doris Duke’s will and endowed by her assets, which currently total above $2 billion. DDF awarded its first grants in 1997, is governed by a board of trustees and continues to be entirely funded through this endowment. The foundation regularly evaluates and modifies its allocation of resources from the endowment to support its grantmaking programs, museums and centers.
