Ducks Unlimited 75th Anniversary Endowment Challenge

Ducks Unlimited 75<sup>th</sup> Anniversary Endowment Challenge

At Ducks Unlimited's 75th Anniversary Convention, three generous supporters stepped up and committed $75 million toward the Ducks Unlimited permanent endowment to ensure that our conservation mission is around to celebrate another 75 years of great work! These three gentlemen also presented Ducks Unlimited with a tremendous challenge: Building Ducks Unlimited's permanent endowment by adding an additional $150 million! This is no easy feat, but with the dedication of our supporters, Ducks Unlimited believes this is a very attainable goal.

Gifts toward the endowment work very similarly to your own investments. With proper management, the returns on these investments will go a long way to ensuring that Ducks Unlimited will be able to maintain its sterling track record for wetlands and waterfowl conservation. The principal of gifts to the permanent endowment go untouched and the moneys raised will allow Ducks Unlimited to put even more money toward on the ground conservation delivery.

It is very simple to make a commitment to help this challenge succeed. All that is necessary is restricting your estate gift to the Ducks Unlimited permanent endowment. We are committed to assisting you in any way we can so that you can cement your conservation legacy all while ensuring that your children's children can attend Ducks Unlimited's 150th Anniversary Celebration! Our gift and estate planning staff stands ready to assist your advisors in order to help you leave a meaningful gift to Ducks Unlimited that helps achieve our goal of Conservation for Generations!

To date we are $37 Million away from our goal of $150 Million!!
