How do we use your donations?

At Ducks Unlimited, you can rest assured that your gifts are being utilized effectively. We strive to use at least 80 percent of every dollar funding our mission. Fortunately and through diligence over the last several years, DU has been able to put 83 cents of every dollar into our conservation mission.


Ducks Unlimited is committed to doing our best work with dollars you invest in our mission.

What is the mission of Ducks Unlimited?

Ducks Unlimited is the world's leader in wetlands and waterfowl conservation.

DU got its start in 1937 during the Dust Bowl when North America’s drought-plagued waterfowl populations had plunged to unprecedented lows. Determined not to sit idly by as the continent’s waterfowl dwindled beyond recovery, a small group of sportsmen joined together to form an organization that became known as Ducks Unlimited.


 Our mission: habitat conservation.  

Working With Partners

No single group could perform the work necessary to meet the goals of the North American Waterfowl Management Plan and DU's International Conservation Plan. Virtually all of DU's projects are done in cooperation with a number of partners, including state and federal agencies, private corporations and foundations, and individuals.
