Pillar Sponsorships

Chautauqua Pillar Sponsorship

Protect and strengthen the Chautauqua pillars by directly supporting your favorite Chautauqua programs and experiences. Enhance the lives of your friends and family through a gift to Lakeside Annual Fund which supports the experiences that matter most.

Lakeside was founded upon the four Chautauqua pillars — Religion, Education, Cultural Arts and Recreation — which are still the heart of the community today. Lakeside provides thousands of unique, inspiring and transformative experiences each year which create Lakeside’s special identity and values as a community.

Did you know you and/or your business can underwrite the Lakeside Chautauqua programs and experiences that mean the most to you? As a Pillar Sponsor, you provide much needed support to the Chautauqua experience or program you’re most passionate about to fuel and advance the mission of your cherished community.

The Chautauqua Pillar Sponsorship program allows you to directly underwrite your interests and passions at Lakeside with a tax-deductible charitable donation. The Lakeside experience is an exploration and enrichment of life through the four Chautauqua pillars: Religion, Education, Cultural Arts and Recreation. As a Pillar Sponsor, you will make an immediate impact and directly fund the experiences that help make Lakeside the safe and unique place you call home. A variety of Pillar Sponsorship opportunities are available so that you can fund the Lakeside pillars and programming you love most. Different levels of sponsorship are available so that you can give at the level that best fits your financial goals.
