Campaigning for the Challenge

Tuesday, July 9, 2019

Are you a fan of Iowa Lakeside Lab? If so, please consider helping with the following fundraising challenge.

The Okoboji Foundation has announced their incentive to once again help the Nonprofit Partners in their Family of Funds (like the Friends) grow their individual endowments. The Okoboji Foundation is offering an additional $5,000 award to the Partner fund that gets the most on-line contributions during the month of July. Check it out at Challenge at GiveOkoboji.com.

Just as a reminder the Friends Endowment annually sponsors academic and research scholarships, writer and artist residence opportunities, year-round PreK-12 environmental education, nature-based teacher professional development, and water quality monitoring. The Friends also work to preserve and maintain the beautiful 147 acre shoreline and prairie as well as the wonderful CCC buildings at Lakeside Lab.

Please remember that donations must be given online at GiveOkoboji.com to the Friends of Lakeside Lab Fund during the month of July. Thanks for helping us rise to the challenge in supporting Lakeside Lab!
