GLA Donors Match Trulaske Matching Grant for Boat Wash Program

Education, Get Involved, News, sticky No Response

Challenge met! The Glen Lake Association is excited to announce that we have been granted $15,000 per year, for three years, in matching funds through the Robert J. Trulaske, Jr. Family Foundation! We wish to thank our donors who made this matching grant possible, keeping our boat wash service at the forefront in protecting Glen Lake from invasive species.

In recognition of the GLA’s work toward preservation and protection of the Glen Lake and Crystal River watershed, the Trulaske Foundation presented us with a matching grant back in March. They were offering up to $15,000 per year, for the years 2017, 2018 and 2019, in support of our boat wash program- a vitally important service that protects the pristine waters of Glen Lake from invasive species. At $30,000 a year to operate, the boat wash expenses have now been underwritten through a combination of the Trulaske grant and donors who stepped up to the challenge.

Going forward, if the GLA can meet the terms of the grant in 2018 and 2019, a total of $90,000 in donated funds will cover three years of boat wash expenses. This would be a great victory for the on-going protection of Glen Lake and the Crystal River watershed!

The GLA welcomes your participation in the matching grant program. If you would like to support the cause in 2018, please contact us at GlenLakeDevelopment@gmail.com.
