Without the generosity of our community, all we do at Lakeside Legacy Foundation would not be possible. Your Patrons of The Dole 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 fundraisers we host each year.  We are not a state-funded organization, as a result, we rely heavily on the donations of our community and the surrounding area.

This campaign will raise much-needed funds for 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.
