Dear Friend of Blue Lake:
As our 48th year of serving children and youth comes to a close, we are pleased to report that Blue Lake Fine Arts Camp provided cultural enrichment to more than 6,000 students during this past summer. In addition to their artistic growth, attending Blue Lake has a significant impact on each student’s developmental journey to adulthood, increasing self confidence, responsibility and respect for others from diverse backgrounds and interests.
For many of our campers, attending Blue Lake simply wouldn’t be possible without financial assistance, and with support of people like you, we awarded more than $2 million in scholarships to deserving students during 2013. Please know that your continued support truly makes a difference and we appreciate your consideration of a year-end gift to sustain our work for the coming year.
Blue Lake Public Radio serves to extend our arts education mission to a world-wide audience and broadcasts classical, jazz and NPR programming 24 hours a day, including a number of live broadcasts featuring our students, faculty and staff. We invite you to tune in via the web at bluelake.org/radio or download the Blue Lake Public Radio app for your smart phone or tablet in the Android Market or I phone App Store. It’s free! For those in West Michigan, simply join us on your FM dial at 90.3 or 88.9
As you consider your year-end gift to Blue Lake, we encourage you to make good use of the income tax charitable deduction. Your gift can significantly reduce your income taxes, while providing meaningful support for Blue Lake Fine Arts Camp. To illustrate how this works, we have enclosed a brochure outlining 2013 year-end gift ideas. If you have questions or would like to structure a specialized gift, annuity, or scholarship endowment, please contact the Blue Lake Development Office at 800-221-3796.
Thank you for your generous support and best wishes to you and your family from Blue Lake for the holiday season.
