To use the power of philanthropy to improve Lake Tahoe’s environment for all to enjoy.
The Tahoe Fund envisions a Lake Tahoe where the natural and human environments are in balance and a growing community of passionate supporters enjoy and cherish this mountain treasure.
Creating a sustainable Lake Tahoe
A number of critical environmental improvement projects have been identified by various agencies in Tahoe. But there is a gap between the existing environmental needs and the available funding for these essential projects. The Tahoe Fund’s goal is to fill some of this gap while acting as leverage for additional public funding from our federal and state partners.
Our generous donors help ensure the successful completion of critical environmental improvement projects that will restore the Lake’s famed clarity, create healthier forests, improve transporation, Tahoe Fund donors have supported more than 35 projects that will improve lake clarity, create healthier forests, improve transportation, create more sustainable recreation, and build new stewards of our Lake Tahoe. In the past few years, we have leveraged $2M in private funds to secure more than $40M in public funds.
