Why Should I Donate?

In order for the Lake Morey Foundation to continue investing in the health and beauty of Lake Morey and its environs we need your financial support!

Your donation contributes to the vitality of Lake Morey and surrounding community, including supporting Town efforts to mitigate cyanobacteria, fighting milfoil and other invasive species, and maintaining the lake’s watershed and forested views.

What Should I Give?

Any donation amount is greatly appreciated! Gifts may be made in the form of cash/check, electronic funds transfer, marketable securities or, in special cases, land. We are also honored to receive donations in memory or recognition of individuals or families that loved Lake Morey.

Financial support for the projects we fund comes entirely from donations by individuals, businesses and organizations – we are dependent on your contributions to enhance Lake Morey for current and future generations.

Note:  We include a yearly list of our donors in an Annual Report that is mailed only to other donors.  Names are not posted publicly beyond this list and we do not identify donor contribution amounts at any time.  If you do not wish to have your name included, please email the LMF Secretary at lakemoreyfoundation@gmail.com and we will list it as anonymous.

Is My Gift Tax-Deductible?

The Lake Morey Foundation is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt, nonprofit organization and, as such, financial contributions to the Foundation are tax deductible. The tax ID is 22-2559584.

Consult your tax professional if you have any questions about your specific situation.
