2022 Annual Fund Letter
Dear LRA Member,
Prior to the invocation at the LRA Labor Day meeting, Reverend Zach Martin, Pastor, Clayton First United Methodist Church and Boat Church Minister, recognized LRA members for their generosity and good works in the Rabun community. He also mentioned the impact of the LRA scholarship program. He shared the excitement expressed by a student in his youth program upon learning that she was the recipient of an LRA scholarship. It was a wonderful, unsolicited tribute to LRA members and the Foundation from a highly respected member of the community. Please know that you are making a difference in Rabun County.
Among the highlights of this year’s 20 new scholarship awards was a scholarship to the son of a 1997 scholarship recipient. And for the first time, two $5,000 scholarship awards were made to students enrolled in graduate school programs—both in the field of child health care.
Equally as important, the Foundation made grants to almost 40 Rabun County non-profit organizations and charities. The LRA and the Foundation have provided support for the men and women of the Lakemont Wiley Volunteer Fire Department for more than 25 years—and that continues today.
The 2022 Annual Fund will once again be the cornerstone of the Lake Rabun Foundation’s fundraising. Your support of the Annual Fund reflects your commitment to the mission of the Foundation and its work in the community. This year many are feeling the impact of the economic turmoil, and that is when our assistance to others is needed more than ever. It is easy to donate online. CLICK HERE and make your donation.
