The SPC is a non-profit organization that is maintained and run by a dedicated Board that is totally voluntary in nature. There are no paid employees or administrators in the SPC organization. As such, the funding for the organization comes from four major sources:

First and foremost are voluntary contributions from permit holders, businesses, community leaders, lake users, property taxpayers, and residents that live near the lake and are committed to protect the environmental, economic and legal interests of the entire lake community.

Contributions can be mailed to: Sacandaga Protection Committee, P.O. Box 86, Mayfield, NY 12117

For your convenience we are also accepting donations through PayPal here. Please note that you do not need to have a PayPal account to donate online; simply select "Don't have a PayPal Account" on following page and you will be able to enter your credit card information.

In addition to generous donations, we conduct three major fundraising activities each year - a summer event with food, drink and a silent auction, a raffle with a $10,000 first prize and limited tickets, and a fall "Redneck" cocktail party, again with food and drink and a live auction.

Expect to see our volunteer SPC board members knocking on your door, along with family, friends and supporters - old and new - to solicit your donations and participation in the three annual fundraisers . We need more volunteers who Love the Sacandaga and are willing to donate time and support to preserve the way of life we all know and thrive on.
