2018 #GivingTuesday Results

Hello LSC fans.

We wanted to share with you the results of your efforts for #GivingTuesday.

We had 42 contributors giving a total of $6,850!

Unfortunately, we did not receive any matching funds from Facebook. Facebook posted that the matching funds were claimed "in a manner of seconds".

While that is certainly disappointing, we want to sincerely thank you all for your efforts.

Our treasurer Elaine will be reaching out to you with a 2019 membership package, including: a receipt, a LSCA window card, a LSCA euro sticker and a handwritten thank you note.

Our traditional, yearly membership drive will begin in February of 2019.

As you may know, the work the LSCA performs each season, including - but not limited to: milfoil control, water testing & monitoring, boat launch monitoring, lake buoy and marker maintenance and boating safety classes - costs over $125,000. Membership contributions make up over 40% of our funding each year. Your funding support is vital for the LSCA's work each season.

We've also recently applied for $49,000 in grants from the Lake Champlain Basin program to help expand our efforts in 2019. We are always on the lookout for ways to generate funds - and the best way to spend these funds to support the preservation, protection and maintenance of Lake St. Catherine.

Thank you all for your support!
