Our Projects

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 Tahoe Fund is actively seeking environmental improvement projects in the Tahoe Basin that require financial support to reach completion and will restore lake clarity, improve outdoor recreation, and inspire environmental stewardship in the region.

The organization will build a broad portfolio of projects to attract donations from the private community of individuals, businesses and foundations. The board of directors will choose a handful of projects to be 2015 Signature Projects and the focus of the Tahoe Fund’s 2015 fundraising activities.

To learn more about requirements for inclusion in the Tahoe Fund portfolio, please download the 2015 Tahoe Fund Projects RFP. Applications will be accepted immediately, but no later than January 30, 2015 at 5pm. Please direct any questions to Amy Berry at [email protected]

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.

The Lake Tahoe Region Aquatic Invasive Species Program (AIS Program) is implemented by over 40 federal, state, and local partners that are committed to preventing the introduction or spread of aquatic invasive species (AIS) in Lake Tahoe. Recreational activities involving watercraft (i.e. motorized vessels, personal watercraft, kayaks, canoes, inflatables) and/or fishing are the most likely sources of the introduction of AIS into Lake Tahoe. The Watercraft Inspection Program is the primary prevention element of the AIS Program with the goal of preventing the spread of new AIS into Lake Tahoe. Read more...
