Since its inception in 1993, Duck Pond has been committed to supporting organizations which seek to benefit the surrounding community through wine donations and charitable contributions. Here are some of the ways we are giving back.
Each year, we ask each of our employees to select an organization to receive a wine and tasting experience donation from Duck Pond. In the past few years, staff members have chosen to donate to: Golden Bond Rescue, Cat Adoption Team, The Giving Closet, The Chelsea Hicks Foundation, DoveLewis, Rhodesian Ridgeback Rescue, Architechtural Heritage Center, Special Olympics Oregon, Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, Hospice of Redmond, Heartlinks, Oregon Friends of Shelter Animals and more.
We've partnered with the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife's Conservation Program to produce a limited-edition Pinot Noir to support their conservation efforts. We've donated more than $20,000 to their efforts to date. Learn more here.
Twice a year, Duck Pond partners with up to three nonprofits for a six-month period as part of our Give & Taste Program. Every month, our tasting room features a special wine only available for tasting as part of our Give & Taste Program. Guests may pay a nominal fee to taste the wine, and the entire tasting fee is donated to the nonprofit of their choice from our current Give & Taste partners. Since its inception in July 2014, our tasters have donated $4,422 through this program.
We are thrilled to partner with the following organizations for our July - December 2017 Give & Taste Program.
