NH LAKES Lake Host Charitable Giving Program
We have developed this program to help our local partners raise funds for their New Hampshire Lakes Association (NH LAKES) Lake Host Program payroll expenses and to provide individuals for an easy way to support their local Lake Host program.
Individuals – this program is for you if you are interested in:
- making a charitable donation to your local group’s NH LAKES Lake Host payroll to protect local lakes from the spread of aquatic invasive species, and
- being able to take a tax deduction for your donation.
If you wish to make a donation to the NH LAKES Lake Host program at your local lake, please click here to go to the NH LAKES Lake Host Online Donation Form form and for step-by-step instructions and the option to make your donation using a credit card or or click here to download a PDF.
Organizations – this program is for you if you are:
- a NH LAKES Lake Host participating organization, and
- interested in increasing donations from individuals for your Lake Host payroll by extending a charitable giving tax deduction to your supporters.
Your organization will receive:
- a link to an online payment form specifically designed for these restricted donations that you can use on your website or in your eNewsletter,
- 100% of all donations applied to your Lake Host payroll, and
- a monthly report itemizing each donation received and the contact information for each donor. (This report will be sent out the first week of the month for all activity in the previous month.)
Your donors will:
- be able to use an online form that provides step-by-step instructions for making a donation to the program including a secure online payment portal for credit card payments,
- receive a timely thank you letter/tax receipt for their restricted donation prepared by NH LAKES staff, and
- receive a tax deduction for their donation to the full extent allowed by law.
- NH LAKES staff will also take responsibility for following up on all corporate matching gifts.
