Your Membership Matters
Members are the heroes at the heart of our watershed protection efforts. When you become a member by making a donation, you play a critical role in keeping the water clean and healthy. As a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, the Glen Lake Association depends on membership donations from businesses and individuals to cover the cost of essential watershed protection programs.
Here are just a few of the recent “wins” made possible last year by our members:
- 4217 boats were washed at the Little Glen public boat launch
- 14 incidences of Eurasian Watermilfoil were removed from those boats
- 7 shoreline and stream bank consultations were conducted
- 26 newsletters were produced to inform the community about current watershed happenings
- 1659 water samples were taken and tested by Association volunteers
- 10 Discovery Boat tours were led by our watershed scientist
- 1 International water quality symposium was hosted by the Glen Lake Association
We partner with area businesses in order to spread the word about watershed protection. When you become a business member, your company name will be promoted on our website and in our annual report. If you represent a business and would like to support the mission of the Glen Lake Association, please donate today!
honorary & memorial gifts
Honor someone special by making a donation in their name. Or, remember a loved one who has passed away with a memorial gift and lasting tribute. When you donate online, you will be given the opportunity to designate your donation as an honorary or memorial gift at that time.
Our legends program recognizes donors who have provided for the Glen Lake Association in their will or estate plan. What better way to ensure the future of Glen Lake and its watershed than by creating a meaningful legacy through a planned gift?
Tamara & Jeff Cutler – Little Glen Riparians
“We joined the Glen Lake Association in 1996 right after we purchased our cottage. We knew the watershed was special, and we wanted to support the work of GLA in protecting and preserving it for future generations. Their work is proactive, thorough, and collaborative, and their communication to members is excellent. We are grateful for their dedication to a place we love!”
Peter & Karen Van Nort – Glen Arbor Residents
“Although we don’t live on the water, we believe that all of us are stewards of our lakes and rivers. We all can enjoy the lakes and the river whether we live on them or not, and with their increasing use it’s more important to protect them than ever. We invite everyone to join us to keep Glen Lake beautiful. It is important for each of us to take responsibility for maintaining the beauty of the water.”
