Part of Lakeside’s charm is that it’s a unique experience for everyone – inspiring worship services, challenging educational lectures, creative art classes, recreational matches. Disconnecting from our daily routine and connecting with friends and family makes Lakeside special. With less than 100 days until Memorial Day Weekend, we are eagerly awaiting the enriching and inspiring summer experiences.

Each year, the Lakeside Annual Fund supports the signature Chautauqua program, historic buildings and beautiful grounds.  Each gift regardless of size impacts the Lakeside experience.

You are invited to give a general gift to the Lakeside Annual Fund or in support of an area you are passionate about such as Ohio’s Most Beautiful Mile, one of the Chautauqua pillars or the Steele Memorial Bandstand/Gazebo revitalization project before the summer gets started.

To give thanks for your gift between now and March 31, you and many Lakesiders will receive a pair of “I Love Lakeside” coasters for those lemonade drinks and front porch conversations this summer. Thank you generously for your love, passion and support of Lakeside.

To donate, go to and provide the address you wish to receive the coasters at in the comment section. You can also give over the phone by calling (419) 798-4461, ext. 246, or by sending a check in the mail to Lakeside Chautauqua Foundation, Attn: Advancement 236 Walnut Ave., Lakeside, Ohio 43440.
