Challenge match met … & extended

7 Lakes Alliance donors have generously met a $50,000 year-end challenge match. But the opportunity has not passed to have a contribution matched dollar for dollar, doubling the impact of each donation. Other supporters are extending the challenge by an additional $15,000.

Contributions can be made by:

  • Mailing a check to 7 Lakes Alliance, P.O. Box 250, Belgrade Lakes, ME 04918.

  • Using a credit card or electronic fund transfer from a bank account at Donations may also be scheduled on a monthly basis at that link.

  • Transferring stocks, bonds and mutual shares by providing brokers with the information at this link.

“We cannot thank our supporters enough,” 7 Lakes President and CEO Laura Rose Day said. “The response to the year-end financial appeal demonstrates the passion people have for conserving the nature of the Belgrade Lakes watershed. They, like we, want to ensure these lakes and these lands can be enjoyed today, tomorrow and for generations to come.”

Contributions support 7 Lakes’ efforts to conserve the lands and waters of the Belgrade Lakes region for all. That work focuses on improving water quality, mitigating erosion, conserving natural lands, removing and preventing the spread of invasive aquatic plants, maintaining trails, and providing educational and recreational programming.

7 Lakes also accepts gifts via donor-advised funds, charitable gift annuities, retirement assets, and planned giving through wills or trusts.
