Donating to the Lakeside ministry means that you are helping to make an important impact on the lives of youth and families through the power of the Gospel.
Lakeside exists to Equip Youth & Families for Christian Life. In a part of the United States that is largely unreached spiritually, the lives of thousands of children and families have been transformed by the ministry and message of God’s Word.
What You Can Expect – 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 programs or projects you choose.
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, which regularly reviews financial reports and budgets. 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.
