Giving Tuesday is May 5, 2020

Hello Members, Donors, and Friends,

Giving Tuesday is a universal generosity movement unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world. It's a special day each year meant to unofficially "open the giving season".

First started in 2012 in the United States, Giving Tuesday typically takes place on the first Tuesday after Black Friday and Cyber Monday. However, this year, Giving Tuesday is taking place on May 5, 2020 as a response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19.

Nine years ago, a group of individuals combined their talents collectively to make sure that Glade Run Lake would not remain a barren wasteland. It’s amazing what you can achieve if you put you mind and efforts behind a project. Having the lake now open for fishing and boating puts a smile on our faces and makes all of us on the Glade Run Lake Conservancy Board of Directors happy to know we did a good deed for our community, county, and state.

Our intent is to make the lake and nature preserve better every year. The Glade Run Lake Conservancy, or GRLC, is a non-profit charitable organization that exists only by and through your support. Our success is your success and we did this together.
