CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

The Washington Duke Inn & Golf Club defines itself with impeccable service, elegant surroundings and exceptional food and wine, but it’s so much more than that. The Inn has served Durham for over 23 years in an array of community service arenas: charity and fundraising events that have continued even well after the founding member has passed on their legacy, a wealth of local organizations through our commitment to various board and staff memberships, worthwhile charities through our generous in-house contributions and on-property charity events that have touched and impacted the lives of so many. The Inn also focuses on being a good steward of the world’s resources by utilizing environmentally friendly options and living and working as sustainable as possible.

The Washington Duke Inn & Golf Club is committed to serving the communities in which we live, work and play.  Supporting our community has always been an important factor to our core mission.   

For further information on Washington Duke Inn & Golf Club community relations programs, please contact Danielle Kaspar, Director of Community Relations at 919.313.9604 or dkaspar@wdigc.com.

Frequently Asked Questions


We are also in special position to give back to the community in ways that include donations of furnishings when the Inn upgrades its guest rooms and suites, and donating linens, toilet tissue and amenities that are no longer of use to our guest rooms, but could be useful to others.  By recycling what we already have, we are able to assist others while also keeping items out of Durham’s landfills. Local organizations that benefit from these donations include Durham Crisis Response Center, Durham Rescue Mission, Habitat for Humanity of Durham, TROSA (Triangle Residential Options for Substance Abusers, Inc.), and Urban Ministries of Durham.
