- One-half of all dues receipts go to the "lake enhancement fund"; and, the balance helps pay for membership communications and meetings, including the Making Waves™ newsletter.
- The lake enhancement fund supports printed materials for public lake education and small lake enhancement projects. (The CL foundation usually funds major projects.)
- Proceeds from pancake breakfasts and fish frys support costs to maintain the clubhouse; send kids to conservation camp and occasional hunter and boating safety classes.
- Independence or "fireworks" contributions stay in a separate fund to pay for that one-day event including the flotilla and fireworks. It costs $11,000 just for the fireworks show.
