If you share our vision of a Cultural Center in downtown Manistique, don’t let this opportunity to double your donation pass by. Go to our Lake Effect Community Arts Facebook page and make a donation to our Cultural Center in Manistique fundraiser or hit the Donate button below.

Facebook doesn't charge any fees to nonprofits. 100% of you donation will go toward our Cultural Center.
It has long been a goal of Lake Effect Community Arts to create a Cultural Center in Manistique. Toward that end, we have created a building fund and have started the process of acquiring a building in the downtown area. This Facebook fundraiser is the first part of a capital campaign to raise the needed funds.



It was a great time and a great success!
THANK YOU!! to all who participated, donated, bought, worked, enjoyed themselves, and in any way helped make this the wonderful event that it was.
