How #GivingTuesday will Impact Lakeside this Year

Posted on October 23, 2015

Taking place on Tuesday, Dec. 1, 2015, #GivingTuesday harnesses the collective power of non-profits, families, businesses and individuals to transform how people think about, talk about and participate in the giving season.

To celebrate this global day of giving, Lakeside is introducing an initiative that supports teen programming and a youth activity center.

This summer, many Lakesiders provided feedback to help plan for Lakeside’s future. You identified critical needs and voiced the importance of youth- and teen-focused programming to keep this age group engaged in the Chautauqua experience.

Nina Buoni, a teen Lakesider, shared what she thinks about the future of Lakeside in a recent blog post. She hopes there will be more opportunities for teens her age. She said that every Lakesider knows what Lakeside is about, but more programming and opportunities for youth would help pass on the essence of Lakeside to a new generation.

Will you give a gift on #GivingTuesday to support teen programming and a youth activity center? Mark your calendar for Tuesday, Dec. 1, 2015.
