Giving Tuesday


#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving that unleashes the power of people and organizations to transform their communities.

On November 29, 2022 you’re invited to protect the pillars by directly supporting your favorite Chautauqua programs and experiences to enhance the lives of your friends and family through the Lakeside Annual Fund.

Will YOU help fuel your cherished Chautauqua experiences by giving on or before November 29, 2022?

Your generosity on #GivingTuesday in past years has enhanced the Chautauqua program and improved facilities for thousands of families by making renovations and repairs and enhancing beloved spaces across the grounds.

This year, you are invited to come together to sustain and enhance the experiences that matter most. Preserve and enrich the special Chautauqua experience for your community. By becoming a Pillar Sponsor on or before Giving Tuesday, you will make an immediate impact on the programs, events and experiences that help make Lakeside the safe and unique place that you call home.

Lakeside was founded upon our four pillars which are still the heart of our community today. Lakeside provides thousands of unique, inspiring and transformative experiences each year which create our special identity and values as a community. This year we are focusing on quality over quantity to provide high-caliber entertainment to enhance the Chautauqua experience while maintaining reasonable gate fees, and Lakeside needs your help.

This sponsorship program allows you to directly underwrite your interests and passions at Lakeside with a tax-deductible charitable donation.

As you know, the Lakeside experience is an exploration and enrichment of life through the four Chautauqua pillars: Religion, Education, Cultural Arts and Recreation. A variety of sponsorship opportunities for businesses and individuals are available so that you can fund the Lakeside pillars and programming you love most.
