Community Relations

Corporate Social Responsibility

With elegant surroundings and impeccable service, it is easy to see why the Washington Duke Inn & Golf Club is regarded as one of the finest Durham hotels. While we pride ourselves on providing memorable experiences for all of our guests, we are equally committed to upholding the Duke family’s spirit of philanthropy through ongoing community partnerships. The Inn has served the Durham community for over 26 years through an array of programs ranging from fundraisers, local organizations that benefit from various board and staff memberships, generous in-house contributions and on-property charity events that have touched and impacted the lives of so many.

We are also in a special position to give back to the community by donating furnishings, linens, and amenities that are no longer in use at the Inn. In this way we can positively impact the local community while also keeping items out of Durham’s landfills.
