Lakeside Annual Fund
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 Lakesiders of all generations and support a place where families and friends can rest, reconnect and renew as a community.
What is the Lakeside Annual Fund?
The Lakeside Annual Fund is our annual fundraising effort to raise dollars for our Chautauqua Program, beautiful gardens, historic buildings and many other critical needs. Your annual gifts provide a critical source of revenue that underwrites virtually every aspect of what renders the Lakeside Chautauqua experience distinctive and unique. You can designate your gift to support the area you and your family love most at Lakeside.
Why is the Lakeside Annual Fund support important?
Your support of the Lakeside Annual Fund is critical to the day-to-day operations of the organization. Your parking and gate fees, while vital, fund less than half of what it takes to produce the Chautauqua experience each year. Additionally, even after food, lodging, property assessment fees, waste removal fees and other sources of income such as special events and concession income, a significant need remains.
When you give to The Lakeside Annual Fund, you make a direct and immediate impact upon Lakesiders of all generations and support a place where families and friends can rest, reconnect and renew as a community. Generosity from your family, friends and neighbors makes the Chautauqua experience possible.
Gifts of every amount are meaningful and make a positive impact. Give today and you can create a lasting moment for a child and family.
