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 receive hundreds of requests for charitable donations from worthy causes throughout the Northwest; unfortunately we are unable to donate to them all. In lieu of selecting just a few of these organizations to receive donations, we have implemented a special pricing program open to all qualified 501(c)(3) organizations for use in their fundraising efforts. Through this program, any qualified nonprofit can purchase wine or a VIP tour certificate at a reduced price. If you have an upcoming fundraiser or special event benefitting a nonprofit, we invite you to take a look at our special pricing program for qualified 501(c)(3) organizations.
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 $48,000 to their efforts to date. Learn more here.
Duck Pond seeks to support those causes which effect positive change, specifically organizations committed to promoting wetlands conservation, animal welfare, and education and services for women in need.
