The Lake Hopatcong Foundation will, once again, join the global giving movement, #GivingTuesday in 2017. This worldwide day of giving, on November 28, encourages millions of people to come together to support the causes they believe in and the communities in which they live.
Donations to the LHF during our #GivingTuesday campaign (now through December 31) support our many programs and initiatives, including the Lake Hopatcong Floating Classroom (#LHFloatingClassroom) which will launch in the spring of 2018, giving students opportunities to explore the lake, learning about freshwater ecology and how to protect our valuable watershed.
By making a donation through our #GivingTuesday campaign, you can…
1. Help name the vessel
For each $25 donated to the LHF through our #GivingTuesday campaign, you can suggest a name for the LHF Board of Trustees to consider when choosing a moniker for the new vessel.
2. Take a wine and cheese voyage
Donate $250 or more and you will be welcomed aboard the newly launched floating classroom, along with three guests, for a very special excursion to learn about the lake through hands-on experiments while enjoying complimentary wines and cheeses.
3. Double your impact
Last year, the LHF raised more than $4,000 through our #GivingTuesday campaign. This year, if we exceed $5,000 in donations through our #GivingTuesday campaign, an anonymous donor will match the total amount, up to $10,000!
Join in the fun!
Help us name the new boat, join us aboard the Lake Hopatcong Floating Classroom and celebrate this new chapter in our educational initiatives with us!
Don’t forget to spread the word
Please share your support of our #GivingTuesday campaign on social media to help spread the word. We will be sharing the name suggestions for the vessel throughout the day!
