About The Lucky Duck Foundation

Our Mission

To prevent and alleviate the suffering of homelessness throughout San Diego County.

Our Vision

To have San Diego County be a national model for addressing homelessness by applying leadership, expertise, accountability, and sound business principles.

Our Approach

We study the issue daily, meet to strategize weekly, and convene key stakeholders and political leaders regularly to instigate progress, collaboration, and change. We employ sound, principled business practices to ensure that every donation makes a difference. By diligently following the facts, we thoroughly vet every effort in order to fund, activate, and lead high-impact programs. Then, by collaborating with best-in-class organizations, we coordinate and focus local efforts to rally the community and call on elected leaders to act. We endeavor to lead San Diego to best practices in all areas of homelessness.
