Friends of Lake Panorama is a public charity organized and operated exclusively for charitable purposes, and is completely separate from the Lake Panorama Association and Lake Panorama National. All contributions to the nonprofit 501(c)(3) charity are tax deductible.

The charity’s seven-member board of directors is focused on improving existing facilities at Lake Panorama’s two golf courses and three beaches, plus developing new recreational amenities as funds allow.

New sports courts at Boulder Beach was the latest priority project. Friends raised $75,000, and the Lake Panorama Association provided an additional $100,000 to complete the project. Site preparation was done in September 2017. Construction got underway in May 2018, and the courts opened in June. Thanks to all those who helped make this possible!

While donations of all sizes were vital to the success of this project, only donors of $500 or more can be recognized on the Friends website. A sign listing these larger donors has been installed on the basketball court fence.

The Friends board has not established its next priority project. Yet donations can be made at any time to one of five funds. There is a general fund, plus funds for Boulder, Shady, and Sunset beaches. And there is a Golf Course Beautification fund, where donors can designate Lake Panorama National or Panorama West. Money donated to these five funds will be used for targeted projects approved by the Friends board.
