Donna Macalle-Holly
Grants and Program Director

Donna Macalle-Holly brings more than a decade of experience advocating for the protection and restoration of Lake Hopatcong to her role at the Lake Hopatcong Foundation. Before joining the Foundation in 2013, Donna held the position of administrator at the Lake Hopatcong Commission, a quasi-independent state environmental commission. A 2012 recipient of the US EPA Environmental Quality Award, Donna served as a member of NJ DEP Citizens Advisory Committee for the Lake Hopatcong Water Level Management Plan. Donna is motivated by the Foundation’s vision for the lake and its surrounding communities. She appreciates having the opportunity to work with dedicated employees, board members, and volunteers to improve Lake Hopatcong for all who use it. Donna had never heard of Lake Hopatcong until 1983 (the year Bertrand Island Amusement Park closed), when she came boating with her friend’s family and met her future husband, Bruce. It’s hard to believe Donna and Bruce have enjoyed living on Lake Hopatcong for more than 25 years (especially since Donna says she is only 29). They love sharing sunsets together near Halsey Island.
