Annual Campaign

$1 Million Annual Campaign

In 2018, Clean Lakes Alliance launched the $1 Million for Our Lakes Annual Campaign, building critical community support and funding for phosphorus reduction. We raised $965,000 in 2018 – that was 97% of our total goal! Help us reach our goal of $1 MILLION in 2019 by donating today!

This beginning-of-year renewal model will allow us to launch into important projects with full funding – from monitoring at all 25 beaches to conservation practices on farmland upstream. We encourage you to make or renew your annual donation today!

How you can help!
