Tahoe Fund is committed to raising funds for projects that are part of Tahoe’s Environmental Improvement Program (EIP). EIP projects have been identified as those most critical to restoring the Tahoe Basin.
The Environmental Improvement Program was highlighted during the 1997 Presidential Summit at Lake Tahoe. President Clinton and others convened at Tahoe to focus efforts on protecting the lake for future generations. EIP projects are designed to achieve and maintain environmental thresholds that protect Tahoe’s unique and valued resources.
