Our Community Story

The Lucky Duck Foundation is more than a non-profit, it’s a community of likeminded people committed to giving thanks by giving back. The organization raises funds for charitable causes through its Swing & Soiree event each year and improves the San Diego area through the leadership and actions of its Advisory Board members, Board of Directors and volunteers. If you consider yourself a “Lucky Duck” consider joining us in our efforts.

Our History

Del Mar couple Pat and Stephanie Kilkenny started the Lucky Duck Foundation in 2005 to raise funds and awareness for worthy causes that are important to them. They chose the name “Lucky Duck Foundation” as a nod to Pat’s Irish heritage and his Oregon roots. Through sponsorships and partnerships with local and national companies,  the Lucky Duck Foundation’s fundraising events continue to grow and draw participants from all around the country. Because of the generosity of Lucky Duck Foundation supporters, as well as Pat and Stephanie’s annual matching gifts, the organization has proudly donated over $7,000,000 to the charities they benefit.
