Most of DUCK's events fund specific charities, such as the London Marathon for Leonard Cheshire Disability, Ride & Seek for Oxfam or our Kilimanjaro expedition for Save the Children. Any money raised through these events goes directly to the specified charity.
For some of our events we let you choose who you wish to fundraise for, such as Formally Lost. Some people choose DUCK whilst others choose a charity close to their hearts.
Occasionally, we'll ask you to only fundraise for DUCK, for example in the hundreds of college events throughout the year. DUCK gives away all of our unrestrcited funds during our annual allocations process, through which local, national and international charities can apply for small grants (generally under £1,000) towards specific projects.
