Lakeside Chautauqua

Giving Tuesday


#GivingTuesday harnesses the collective power of nonprofits, families, businesses and individuals to transform how people think about, talk about and participate in the giving season. It’s a Global Day of Giving.

Participating in #GivingTuesday for the past 10 years, the Lakeside community has generously given nearly $2 million in support of the Lakeside Chautauqua program, care for our historic buildings and sacred grounds.

To celebrate this Global Day of Giving, Lakeside is introducing an initiative that enhances the ‘Power of the Four Chautauqua Pillars’ – religion, education, arts and recreation. These pillars allow the thousands of people who visit each summer the opportunity to deepen their spiritual journeys, learn about the world together, unleash creativity, and reinvigorate personal wellness.

A special place like Lakeside is needed now more than ever. You have an opportunity to strengthen the ‘Power of the Pillars,’ and ultimately the Lakeside Chautauqua experience.

By giving a gift to the Lakeside Impact Fund (formally the Annual Fund) you help enhance and create the unique experiences for children, individuals and families to refresh and reunite.

Thank you for caring passionately about Lakeside. Coming together as a community creates the spirit of Chautauqua.
