Because we believe that 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. This includes but is not limited to several strategies:

  • Shelters – connecting the homeless to shelter, critical services, and a pathway to long-term housing
  • Employment Opportunities & Job Training – providing employment skills, work experience and job training across a multitude of industries through numerous community service providers
  • Food and Water – delivering life-saving food, water, and services to unsheltered San Diegans
  • Actionable Research – collaborating with San Diego’s institutions of higher learning to research, identify and implement best-in-class strategies in support of individuals experiencing homelessness. 
  • Strategic Collaborations – maximizing resources, partnerships, expertise and outcomes
  • Finding and Following Facts – polling San Diegans, 84% of whom said vacant government buildings should be used as inclement weather shelter
  • Signature Campaign – urging elected officials to open vacant government buildings based on overwhelming public opinion
  • Technology and Access – providing computers, tablets and other technology to enable the homeless to pursue housing, employment and educational opportunities
  • Outreach– linking the homeless to shelter, critical services and other necessities 
  •  Meals and Food Rescue – eliminating waste by collecting and distributing unused food 
  • Tuesday Group – weekly meeting of fact-based business and civic leaders committed to leading San Diego to best practices in all areas of homelessness
  • Symposiums – we host regular meetings that convene business, civic, political, philanthropic, and homeless leaders and other stakeholders to drive collaboration and progress
  • Community Care Kits – supplying personal hygiene items and other necessities
  • And Several Other Initiatives – provided they are cost-effective and best-in-class with proven results and effective leadership

We are business, civic, and philanthropic leaders who study the issues surrounding homelessness to instigate meaningful collaboration, action, and progress. With your help, we can fund and activate programs that have high and meaningful impact that are best-in-class, fact-based, cost-effective and show results.

Plus, every dollar donated (up to $1 million per year), is matched by Lucky Duck Foundation co-founders, Pat and Stephanie Kilkenny.

With your support, we can do more to alleviate the suffering of the region’s homeless. Thank you for considering donating and hosting a fundraiser in support of the Lucky Duck Foundation.
