Dallas DU honored

The Dallas Chapter of Ducks Unlimited was named a President’s Elite chapter today, a designation reserved for chapters that raise $100,000 or more annually for DU’s habitat conservation work. This is the first time the Dallas Chapter has attained this honor.

“To be among the President’s Elite signifies an over-and-above commitment by these chapters to raise significant funds for DU’s conservation mission,” DU President John Pope said. “These chapters have set the standard for what is possible with DU’s fundraising efforts.”

The Dallas DU Chapter is one of 43 DU chapters to achieve President’s Elite status this year. DU’s grassroots system – with more than 2,700 chapters nationwide − has become a model for other conservation organizations worldwide and has helped conserve more than 12 million acres of waterfowl habitat since 1937.

“In raising more than $100,000 for DU’s conservation mission, the President’s Elite chapters have placed themselves at the very top of DU’s grassroots fundraising system,” Jim West, DU’s chief fundraising officer, said. “I would personally like to thank each of these chapters for their passion for conservation and their exemplary leadership.”

Ducks Unlimited is the world’s largest nonprofit organization dedicated to conserving North America’s continually disappearing waterfowl habitats. Established in 1937, Ducks Unlimited has conserved more than 12 million acres thanks to contributions from more than a million supporters across the continent. Guided by science and dedicated to program efficiency, DU works toward the vision of wetlands sufficient to fill the skies with waterfowl today, tomorrow and forever.
