The Mary Duke Biddle Foundation

Mary Duke Biddle Foundation We are so grateful for the people and institutions that support us financially and help us empower and equip students, families, and educators. Student U supporters are people just like you, changing their communities. Mary Duke Biddle Foundation’s Story
The Biddle Foundation was founded in Durham in 1956 and has generously supported nonprofits in the region since then, with an emphasis on education and the arts.  In 2007, when Student U was being launched, the Biddle Foundation stepped up as an early funder, and they have been helping us make a positive impact on our community ever since.
