Virtual Duck Races
At GAME, we strive to provide our fundraising partners with the tools they need to host a successful Derby Duck Fundraiser. Even though it’s been 3 years since the pandemic started, many non-profits are still in need of alternatives to physical fundraising events. That is where the Virtual Derby Duck Fundraiser comes in.
We’ve implemented various tools to help our racers continue to raise funds throughout the on-going pandemic. With our Equack Fundraising Software, we provide a random race winners tool that our fundraising partners can use to find their virtual race winners. We also offer a virtual gift bag, which racers can use in collaboration with their sponsors to provide virtual offers and promotions to duck adopters on their websites. Our marketing packages also include an option for a virtual duck race video, which we create for our racers to use in place of a physical duck race, or to promote their upcoming Derby Duck Fundraiser.
Just like a physical rubber duck race, but without the crowds or many people in attendance, a Virtual Derby Duck Fundraiser allows non-profits to tailor their fundraising event to their own needs. Whether that means racing rubber ducks and live streaming the event on social media, or replacing the physical race completely with a virtual duck race video, GAME is here to help.
Virtual Duck Races
Nevada Humane Society
In 2020, the Nevada Humane Society hosted their Derby Duck Fundraiser virtually for the first time and doubled the number of ducks adopted in previous years. In 2019 they adopted a total of 18,870 ducks, and in 2020 their final number of adoptions was 47,899. 2021 was their second year hosting a virtual event, and they exceeded their duck adoption goal yet again with a grand total of 54,601 duck adoptions.
Advocates for Children
In 2021, Advocates for Children went virtual and exceeded their duck adoption goal for the first time in many years. Their original goal was 20,000 duck adoptions and they ended up with a total of 21,417 ducks adopted!
Rotary Club of Sugarloaf
Like many other of our racers, The Rotary Club of Sugarloaf hosted their Annual Gwinnett Duck Derby online in 2021 due to continued covid-19 safety protocols. They adopted the most ducks ever in their seven years racing, and the winners were chosen through the Random Race Winners Tool.
