Donors offer $50K challenge match

Two generous donors have extended a combined $50,000 challenge match for 7 Lakes Alliance’s annual year-end appeal. The challenge means that through year's end, donations totaling up to $50,000 will be matched dollar for dollar, thereby doubling your gift's impact on the Belgrade Lakes region.

“When you give to 7 Lake Alliance, you are supporting the most effective science-based organization to tackle the challenges facing our lakes and lands,” said Laura Rose Day, 7 Lakes President and CEO. “We are grateful our wonderful donors are supporting critical efforts to broaden our base of support throughout the watershed. We hope everyone with an emotional and economic investment in conserved lakes and lands will consider donating now, which, with this matching opportunity, will yield twice as much good in our community.”

Donors can contribute a tax-deductible gift in a variety of manners, including:

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

  • A one-time gift with a credit card or an electronic fund transfer from a bank account at 7lakesalliance.org/donate, or by clicking the button below. Donations may also be scheduled on a monthly basis at 7lakesalliance.org/donate.

  • A donor-advised fund.

  • A charitable gift annuity.

  • Gifts from retirement assets.

  • Planned giving via bequests to 7 Lakes in a will or trust.
