How to Give to Lakeside

Give Annually

Your gifts to The Lakeside Annual Fund support the Chautauqua programs and improvements to buildings and grounds. When you give to The Lakeside Annual Fund, you make a direct and immediate impact upon the Lakeside experience.  

Protect the Lakeside Experience Monthly

The 1873 Fellowship is made up of dedicated Lakesiders who give a monthly gift to support the Lakeside experience. You are invited to join a group of go-getters, innovators and trailblazers who are impacting the Lakeside experience monthly.

Planning A Legacy Gift

Planning a gift is an investment in the future of Lakeside, a significant way to make a lasting difference and a way to accomplish your financial and philanthropic goals.

Double the Impact

Utilizing your employer’s matching gift program is a significant and easy way to maximize the impact of your generosity to Lakeside.  You can also give to Lakeside when you shop through Amazon Smiles.  Double your impact and support Lakeside.

Fuel the Chautauqua Pillars

Lakeside was founded upon the four Chautauqua pillars — Religion, Education, Cultural Arts and Recreation — which are still the heart of the community today.  You have an opportunity to fuel the Chautauqua Pillars and create enriching and renewing experiences.

Support the Sesquicentennial Anniversary

The Sesquicentennial Committees have been busy planning and developing programming and special events for the Sesquicentennial celebration.  You can help create a celebration for our 150th Anniversary.

Volunteering at Lakeside

The Lakeside Chautauqua Volunteer Corps, a new initiative organized by the Lakeside Chautauqua Foundation Board, is an opportunity for Lakesiders of all ages to help fill the gap of decreased labor in Lakeside by volunteering across the grounds and programming.
