We did it!

January 24, 2022

And by “we” that means YOU and the entire community of lake lovers who helped 30 Mile exceed its goal of raising $140,000 in gifts from individuals and corporations for 2021.

The “Doubling Down for Clean Lakes” Matching Challenge helped raise $147,944 from 424 donors! We are beyond grateful to all of you for your support:


  • To the four donors who sponsored this challenge with your generous offer to match a total of $30,000. Your belief in our work and optimism that others would rise to the challenge made all of this possible.
  • To everyone who met the challenge by doubling your gift, becoming new donors, or returning to 30 Mile after missing a year or two. 
  • To our Blue Diamond Donors (gifts of $1K or more) who made a significant increase and to those of you who became new Blue Diamond Donors.
  • To those of you who continued to support 30 Mile even if you were unable to meet the challenge this time. 

We appreciate EVERY gift!


Together, we got there! Our promise to you is that we will use these funds where they will have the greatest impact on the health of our lakes. We are committed to this work, to partnering with volunteers and lake associations, to expanding our outreach, and to fulfilling our mission to work as a community for clean and healthy lakes, ponds, and streams in our watershed.

Thank you to all of our 2021 donors!
