Guided by our mission and in honor Duke’s 125th birthday, the Foundation embarked on the Duke 125 campaign. The funds generated from the campaign will enable the Foundation to make a greater impact on individuals and organizations that perpetuate the legacy of Duke.
Since its inception in 1986 ODKF has been providing support to teams and students that personify the spirit of Duke Kahanamoku. The active stewardship of our Mission, sprouts forth from all who continue to donate, growing through our watermen communities, and lifting our Duke Scholar-Athletes toward their shared success.
In the face of rising costs of education and competition, we all share this opportunity and responsibility, acknowledging the Foundation’s need to sustain a deeper ability to transform the lives of our next ambassadors.
