Thank YOU for making #GivingTuesday a success!
Today, we celebrate YOU and give thanks for your kindness, compassion and generosity on #GivingTuesday !

The Lakeside community has deep roots and ever-growing branches, and seeing Lakesiders come together to honor the past and foster the future is a true testament for your love and commitment to this special place.
This #GivingTuesday, nearly 350 Lakesiders opened their hearts and generously gave more than $270,000 towards enhancements to the Pavilion! What an extraordinary amount of support from so many thoughtful individuals and families!

In addition, gifts were given to the Lakeside Endowment and the Lakeside Annual Fund, specifically to the four Chautauqua pillars, waterfront, group housing, grounds and more.

Loved ones were also celebrated and remembered with gifts honoring birthdays, anniversaries and the lives of Lakesiders who have recently passed away. 
You've made an impact...
Because of your awe-inspiring support on #GivingTuesday, the following upgrades will be made to the Pavilion:

  • Add ADA accessible ramp to the West Deck
  • Replace stairs & repair structural rot
  • Rewire & enhance Wi-Fi capabilities
  • Add a fresh coat of paint
  • Install more efficient LED lighting
  • Replace Pavilion Upper Room windows
  • Add heating & cooling in the Pavilion Upper Room
  • Add a restroom in the Pavilion Upper Room
  • Upgrade or replace Carillon & Pavilion clock motor
Your gifts will help preserve and enhance this structure for years to come. Thank you! In addition, we’re excited to commemorate the Rev. Irwin and Janet Jennings by naming the Pavilion East Deck in their honor. 
You've inspired others to give...
Your kindness on #GivingTuesday was a point of inspiration to the staff here at Lakeside Chautauqua. And because of it, the staff came together to give a $5,000 gift. Generous members of the Lakeside Chautauqua Foundation then matched the staff’s gift, making a combined total donation of $10,000 towards the Pavilion! Lakeside is grateful for your shining example of thoughtful generosity.
Several Lakeside organizations also stepped forward on #GivingTuesday to make a significant impact, and we wish to thank the Lakeside Environmental Stewardship Society (LESS) , the Society of Old Salts (S.O.S.) and the Lakeside Wooden Boat Society (LWBS) for their generous support.

LESS' gift will help to enhance the Pavilion with LED exterior lighting. These new lights will increase energy efficiency and improve sustainability. The Pavilion and waterfront are near and dear to members of S.O.S. and LWBS. Therefore, these two organizations graciously donated to support improvements to the area.

We give thanks for all the gifts and blessings bestowed upon Lakeside on #GivingTuesday and every day. Each gift helps to transform the lives of Lakesiders by providing opportunities for renewal and growth while nurturing mind, body and spirit. Thank you!
