Charitable supporters and corporate sponsors who give $500 or more to the Annual Fund within a calendar year are recognized as members of the Friends of the Lake Circle. Charitable supporters who are part of the Friends of the Lake Circle are also recognized as Lake Junaluska Associates and invited to the annual celebration weekend.
Ensure the Lake Continues To Be a Beloved Place
A significant part of experiencing Lake Junaluska includes slowing down the hectic pace of everyday life and finding true connections with family, friends and faith. These experiences are made possible because of the support of people like you, the Friends of the Lake.
Through your gift to the Friends of the Lake, you ensure that Lake Junaluska continues to be a beloved place where the community can enjoy the walking trail, gardens and breathtaking vistas. For example, your funds enable our landscaping crew to plant more than 10,000 annuals and perennials across Lake Junaluska’s grounds, as well as maintain the walking trail.
