We Reached Our #GivingTuesday Goal – All Donations Will be Matched!

Giving Tuesday Thanh YouThank you for helping us reach our goal

The Lake Hopatcong Foundation joined the #GivingTuesday movement on November 28 with a very special giving opportunity (see below).  A generous, anonymous donor challenged us to raise a minimum of $5,000 through our campaign in order to qualify for a matching gift and we have met that goal thanks to you!  A huge thank you to all who supported our #GivingTuesday campaign. We had a blast compiling all the name suggestions for the new Lake Hopatcong Floating Classroom vessel and we are excited to plan for the upcoming wine and cheese excursions!

Campaign will run through the end of the year

Not to worry if you haven’t yet joined in the fun.  Our #GivingTuesday campaign, and your chance to help name the vessel or join us for a special wine and cheese voyage, will be available until the end of the year.  In addition, all #GivingTuesday donations up to $10,000 will be matched 1:1.  That means your gift of $100 becomes a donation of $200 to protect and improve Lake Hopatcong and support our lake communities!

2017 #GivingTuesday Campaign

Donations to the LHF during our #GivingTuesday campaign (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

All donations through our #GivingTuesday campaign will be matched by an anonymous donor 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!
