For All, and For Future Generations!
As stewards of the Spider Chain of Lakes and watershed you have an opportunity to share in preserving and protecting this beautiful resource for generations to come by contributing to our Annual Giving Program
Your contribution will fund SCLA efforts to combat environmental threats such as Aquatic Invasive Species; preserve the outstanding water quality; and educate our community about long-term conservation solutions. Contributions may be pledged over 1 to 5 years
What We Do (& What it Costs)
In the past, SCLA mission activities were funded with the help of Government grants. While we will continue to apply for grants, they are no longer as plentiful. We cannot count on government funds in the future.If we do not implement a sustainable financial plan we will no longer be able to continue our mission of preserving and protecting our lakes.
AND without a sustainable financial plan, we will lack funds to mitigate invasive species or other new threats to our lake environment.
It's up to us to protect it! We need your help in raising funds. Our goal is two fold: (1) to establish an Endowment to provide a consistent source of funds to meet our operating expenses, and (2) to create an Operating Reserve Fund to use in an emergency to mitigate aquatic invasive species or other catastrophic lake events. Why so much? Please consider why you love Spider Lake and consider making a meaningful and substantial contribution.
