Share Your Luck in Support of Our Mission

All donations matched up to $1.5 million per year by our co-founders

Because we believe homelessness is San Diego’s number one issue, we raise money to fund and activate high-impact programs that alleviate the suffering of homelessness throughout San Diego City & County.

With your help, we can fund and activate high-impact programs throughout San Diego City and County that are best-in-class, fact-based, cost-effective and show results.

Plus, every dollar donated (up to $1.5 million per year), is matched by Lucky Duck Foundation co-founders, Pat and Stephanie Kilkenny.
