Derby Duck Fundraiser

What are Adoption Events?

Adoption Events are hosted by your Derby Duck Fundraiser committee. The goal is to spread awareness about your event and also acquire duck adoptions. You can have a free-standing booth, or partner with local businesses to hold adoption events at their building.

When Do Adoption Events Start?

Adoption events should start as soon as Duck Season begins, or 6 weeks before your Derby Duck Fundraiser! GAME recommends a minimum of 1 adoption event per week leading up to your fundraiser.

Adoption Event Tools

Adoption papers or adoption tickets are key tools used in attaining duck adoptions for the Derby Duck Fundraiser. They are designed to combine the best features of an informational brochure or event ticket. You can utilize these multifunction pieces through point of purchase displays, direct mail or at adoption events.

We’ve started you off by providing some tips on how you can get your ducks adopted at adoption events!

  • Send an email blast to friends, family, and members of the community informing them about upcoming adoption events.
  • Always make sure you “ask” someone if they would consider adopting a duck. If you don’t ask, you’ll never know!​
  • Always include a call to action in your correspondence. Don’t just tell people what you’re doing, ask for their help!
  • Display posters, business cards, or yard signs about your event around the community.
  • Use Facebook, Instagram, and other social media channels to spread awareness about your event.
  • Partner with your community. Ask local businesses to display your posters or or event tickets for a few weeks!
