2017 Estes Park Duck Charitable Organizations

95% of all Duck Race Adoptions go to local charities!

The whole purpose of the Duck Race is to help the Estes Valley community support the vital charities in the valley. Each charity is responsible for selling as many of the Duck Race Adoptions as they choose with the expectation that the proceeds from these sales will be returned to them after the Duck Race. It’s a great system because the charities actually help themselves and our community by selling the adoptions as they see fit and the entire country supports their efforts with generous purchases of the adoptions. Because the Duck Race is an operation run by the Rotary of Estes Park with the help of lots of volunteers, the costs are kept low and the charities receive 95% of the proceeds of the sales.
