Duck Difference Difference Difference

What makes us different? Our people.

While this past year has been a year unlike any of us have ever experienced, the overwhelming sense of gratitude we feel from Duck Donor support is also unlike ever before. 

The unwavering and loyal support of donors has allowed us to provide our Oregon student-athletes with the best experience possible. Even during challenging times, the Duck community has stepped up, with nearly 7,000 season ticket holders and donors rolling their funds forward for future events and approximately 2,600 donors committing more than $13M in support of our student-athletes this year. Included in these totals is close to $2 million in football season ticket dollars and per seat contributions that were voluntarily converted to philanthropic gifts. This shows the extraordinary commitment and generosity of Ducks in a time of need.

who we are

The Duck Athletic Fund is the fundraising arm of Oregon Athletics, responsible for generating revenue through philanthropic support to ensure 476 Oregon student-athletes have the opportunity to compete as champions in the classroom, in competition and in the community.

In order to achieve ambitious goals, invest in every student-athlete and generate the success we love to celebrate, Oregon Athletics relies heavily on philanthropic gifts to the Duck Athletic Fund. Through the generosity, compassion and loyalty of donors like you, we share the magic of Autzen Stadium on a Saturday, a buzzer beater in Matthew Knight Arena and the countless success stories of Oregon student-athletes who represent the UO in the Eugene community and around the world.
