What Can Ducks Do in a Day? 

 

We asked that question, and Ducks like you joined together to accomplish amazing feats and truly make an enormous impact on current and future Ducks:

  • 55 challenge gifts unlocked
  • Nearly 2,000 total gifts
  • $1.7 million raised to benefit UO students, academics, the arts, and athletics

#DucksGive 2019 was an incredible day of giving at the University of Oregon. We’re proud, impressed, and most of all, grateful to the legions of Ducks who answered the call.

 

All that’s left to say is…..Thank you!

 

-The #DucksGive team
