  • How will my friends know their donations are going to DU in my name?

Your photo and personal message are essential. They are what brand your personal donation page. When your friends click your profile badge or follow a link you've sent, they will see these personalized elements and know they're in the right place to donate to your Duck Fever campaign! You can add or edit these items using your Duck Fever Dashboard at any time. Simply click "Edit" next to either feature. Whenever someone donates to your campaign, you'll receive an e-mail alert and see your goal thermometer rise as confirmation that your campaign is earning money for DU!

  • What if my friends don't want to make an online donation?

Currently, all donations to your Duck Fever campaign must be made online. Your friends can make a general donation to DU by calling 1.800.45.DUCKS.

  • Can I donate to my own Duck Fever campaign?

Definitely. You may choose to match a friend's donation or simply move more quickly toward your goal by putting a little money in the pot yourself. The sky's the limit with Duck Fever! For more on this and other donor strategies, visit our Duck Fever Tips section on donor relations.

  • Where does the money go?

All donations made to Duck Fever will be used to further DU's conservation mission and will be put toward our highest-priority projecs and conservation efforts on the ground. The donations will come to DU in your name and those Duck Fever participants who reach their goal will be recognized on the DU Web site.

  • What will I get when I reach my goal?

We want to recognize all of our Duck Fever participants who have made their fund-raising goals. We have created an online recognition wall where your name will appear once you've reached your goal.

  • How can I thank those who have donated to my campaign?

There are many ways to say “Thanks!” Here are a few we recommend: 1) Use the “Send Thank You” option on your Duck Fever Dashboard. This option will appear below each of your donors. A new window will open, allowing you to personalize a thank-you e-mail to the donor of your choosing; 2) Send your own thank-you e-mail or other message. If you know your friend or family member’s e-mail address, drop them a line. 3) Recognize them online. If they clicked on your Duck Fever badge in Facebook, thank them in your status message. If they donated through your blog, dedicate an entry to their generosity. Other ways to appeal to donors are available in the donor relations section of Duck Fever Tips.

  • Where do I find the link to my donation page?

You can find it on your Duck Fever Dashboard under "My Public Donation Page." This is the address your friends and family will need to donate to your campaign as well.

  • How do I get people interested in donating?

First, make sure you’ve uploaded a photo and written a personal message about why you’re raising money for Ducks Unlimited. Those two elements will be your biggest keys to success with Duck Fever. You can add or edit either at any time using your Duck Fever Dashboard. More donor relations information is available in Duck Fever Tips.
