Without the generosity of our community, all we do at Lakeside Legacy Foundation would not be possible. Your Patrons of the Arts donation will help us continue to…

  • preserve the historic Dole Mansion and Arts Park as a “gem of a destination”
  • sustain innovative arts and educational programs, gallery exhibits, and performances
  • host family-friendly community events and festivals, provide a necessary space for educators and entrepreneurs to inspire the next generation of creative minds
  • and so much more!

Lakeside Festival is one of the largest charitable fundraiser we host each year.  We are not a state funded organization, as a result, we rely heavily on the donations of our community and surrounding area.

Throughout the weekend we will be asking our attendees to support us by making a special one-time donation.  This is a milestone year for us — because we are also celebrating the 15th Year Anniversary of the Foundation and the 5 year Anniversary for ‘the Listening Room’.

This campaign will raise much needed funds for Lakeside Arts Park at the Dole’s amazing historic building, art education programs, community events, and it will also raise awareness in the community about the powerful IMPACT the arts have on everyday lives.

I want to thank you in advance for your donation –  we could not do it without you and together we are making a difference.
