Village of Rouses Point, NY



The Village of Rouses Point is an active waterfront community perched on the picturesque shores of Lake Champlain, in the northeast part of New York State.

We want to tell you about an exciting project we are leading in the Village of Rouses Point to keep our residents active!  Have you noticed the number people that enjoy walking in our community?  What a beautiful location we have!  We want to enhance that healthy activity by adding outdoor fitness equipment and landscaping to a newly paved trail in our recreation park.  This trail helps connect the downtown to the waterfront and completes a ½ mile loop around the perimeter of the park. You can read more about it at

Our project was one of a handful of selected projects from across New York to be awarded up to $5,000 in matching funds by the NY State Health Foundation (NYSHF).  Any donation given, up to $200, will be matched by NYSHF; when you donate $25, NYSHF will give an additional $25!  This opportunity lasts only through September 30th, 2016 so we’re asking our community to give a tax deductible donation to our campaign online at https://www.

Donors who prefer to support our project by check may have their gifts matched by making the check out to “ioby” with “Rouses Point” on the memo line. The check may be given to one of the committee members or be mailed to ioby at 540 President St., 3rd Floor, Brooklyn, NY 11215.  Check donors who would like to receive a tax acknowledgement must include a note with the check requesting a receipt and list your name, email address and phone number.  Cash donations can be accepted by the committee members for deposit to ioby but will not be eligible for tax acknowledgement. 

Every dollar helps and we will be following up with a quick phone call to share more about our project and its progress.

Thank you for considering this worthwhile campaign.  Our motto is “You don’t stop playing because you grow old; you grow old because you stop playing!”

To never growing old,
