Support Lakeside

Thank you very much for considering a financial gift to the Lakeside Christian Camp ministry.

Lakeside exists to prepare youth and families for Christian life. In a region of the country that is largely unreached spiritually, the lives of thousands of children and families have been transformed by God’s power working through the biblically-based, Christ-centered Lakeside ministry.

Lakeside is operationally self sustaining; however, we rely on your financial support and partnership in the work of providing Christian discipleship and character formation to the next generation of children and families.

What you can expect with your financial gift to Lakeside:   Your donation will be used exactly as you intended; Because administrative fees are kept to a minimum, nearly all of your donation directly benefits the program or project you choose; And, you will receive quarterly updates describing the impact your financial gift is having in the lives of children and families.

Lakeside is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization, under the Converge Northeast ministry. All gifts are tax-deductible.

I welcome your questions and am available to speak with you by telephone or to personally meet with you.

John Mead
Executive Director



Give with Confidence

We recognize that donating is act of faith, trusting that Lakeside will use your gift just as you intend.  To ensure that donations, along with all financial transactions are managed appropriately, Lakeside has established multiple levels of financial accountability.

The system of accountability is led by experienced and skilled Board members, including an Audit & Finance Committee, who regularly reviews financial reports and budgets (link to board members). The executive director and staff are directly accountable to the Lakeside Board.

The Lakeside Board is in turn accountable to the Converge Northeast Board of Trustees. Under the leadership of the District Executive Minister, the Trustees are comprised of pastors and lay leaders from member churches.

In addition to board oversight, Lakeside financial operations are audited annually by a Certified Public Accountant.

Lakeside is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization, owned and operated by the ministry of Converge Northeast. All gifts are tax-deductible.
