DU Sweet 16 for 2011

Each spring, Ducks Unlimited announces its Sweet 16 list of top-producing volunteer university chapters throughout the nation. This elite group is considered the best of the best when it comes to fundraising and overall chapter strength.

To qualify for the Sweet 16, chapters must have raised more than $14,000 during the 2011 calendar year. Collegiate chapters throughout the country raised more than $600,000 in 2011, more than $300,000 of which was from the Sweet 16 chapters.

"Ducks Unlimited's university program continues to be a vital part of our organization's mission. It is a valued revenue generator for our conservation efforts, as well as an important source of organizational awareness and leadership," said David Schuessler, DU's national director of grassroots fundraising. "I congratulate not only the Sweet 16 chapter volunteers but all college students who have chosen to support DU through university chapters, and I encourage those who have not attended an event to come share in the excitement and fun!"
