Nearly Halfway To Match Goal

What a great response the LGA has had to our Menzies Match Challenge!

We are nearly halfway there in getting an extra $20,000 to spend on Lake George Water Protection in 2019 thanks to a challenge grant from the Menzies family!

deep thanks to the many who have already responded! Can you help us reach the goal?

Let’s be clear: We know that this a difficult and uncertain financial climate for current investments and year-end financials.

But even with that understanding, you know that every dollar you donate to the LGA is invested in protecting Lake George – and for only the next fourteen days (including the rest of today!) your investment will be matched dollar for dollar up to $20,000!

Any amount you could donate will be protective. Can you help?
