Fundraising Goal Near For Mt. McSauba Playground; Double Your Contribution With Matching Grant

Since late fall 2023, The Rotary Club of Charlevoix has been raising funds for a new playground at Mt. McSauba. The Club is excited to say they are nearing 50% of the fundraising goal and now have a new opportunity to raise the $250,000 goal even faster. 

The Chicago Summer Resort Club of Charlevoix is offering a $50,000 matching dollar grant towards the project. Now is a great time to donate to the project as the Chicago Club graciously matches donations up to a $50,000 total towards the project. 

The need for a modern playground facility at Mt. McSaubarecreational area was identified through a City of Charlevoix Community Needs Assessment process, though funding for the project has not been available. Given the Rotary Club’s decades-long interest in supporting local youth, raising substantial funds annually for a variety of school and community youth needs, a partnership between the Rotary Club and City of Charlevoix was fitting to help bring this project to fruition.

A community build for the new playground at Mt. McSauba is planned in the spring of 2025.

Donations also can be mailed to Charlevoix Rotary Club, PO Box 532, Charlevoix MI 49720. Donation levels can be seen on the website, and the club plans to recognize donors with signage at the playground.
