GIVE TO FUTURE GENERATIONS
HELP US CONTINUE OUR WORK FOR GENERATIONS!
Planned giving is a charitable donation in someone’s last will or trust. Naming the Green Lake Association as a beneficiary in your will or making a contribution in someone's name is a gift that helps to ensure that the needs of Green Lake can be met for generations to come.
Contributions made in honor of a family member or friend is a lasting way to preserve their life while also helping take care of our lake. Examples of how others have honored their loved ones include:
Generous memorial donors and lake partner organizations helped build a trail in memory of Brian Hamming. Brian was influenced by the time he spent working in the marshes and waters of Norwegian Bay, and he went on to study within the Nelson Institute for Environmental Studies as a result. The Hamming family believed that a trail in his name was a fitting remembrance for Brian, whose contributions and overall love for Green Lake had a lasting impact on the lake that means so much to so many people. A trail in his memory, Hammer's Trail, also serves as an inspiration to others that people can accomplish great things when they are willing to dedicate their time and talents to things they truly love.
STEVE WOOD MEMORIAL
Steve Wood was a long-time GLA board member. He was passionate about conserving the lake and enjoyed spending time boating, fishing, and “listening to the lake and watching the stars on a warm, clear night.” Steve shared with members, community residents, and friends the importance of Green Lake. He believed that Green Lake is a unique and irreplaceable natural resource and that all property owners and lake users have personal responsibilities to preserve its integrity. Steve’s family used his memorial funds to support our virtual watershed tour.
