Charitable Foundation


Make a difference.

The Duquesne Club Charitable Foundation was established to promote art education and historic preservation in the region and support a scholarship program that benefits Duquesne Club employees.

The Foundation, a public charity organized under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, furthers the following charitable purposes:

  • Acquisition and preservation of significant works of art, books and decorative arts. These works are displayed to the public through tour groups, outreach presentations and major art exhibitions that promote art education in the region.
  • Maintenance and restoration of the exterior of the historic clubhouse. The clubhouse was placed on the National Register of Historic Places by the United States Department of the Interior in 1995. Maintenance of its exterior, which is daily viewed and enjoyed by the public, promotes historic preservation in the region.
  • Financial support of the Camille Mauclair/Duquesne Club Employees Scholarship Fund. The Scholarship Fund, established by Club members David and Eileen D’Appolonia in memory of Eileen’s father, long-time Club employee Camille Mauclair, is operated by The Pittsburgh Foundation. The Scholarship Fund assists children of Duquesne Club employees with demonstrated financial need in realizing their educational goals at accredited colleges and universities, or at post-secondary vocational and technical schools.

All activities of the Foundation are conducted by staff of the Duquesne Club and volunteers from the membership.
