Dear Tahoe Fund Friends,
It is with great pride that we present our FY 2019/20 Tahoe Fund Annual Report for our fiscal year that ended on March 31, 2020. As we look back on what we accomplished in the last year, we have a lot to celebrate. As our portfolio of environmental improvement projects has continued to grow, so has the support from our donors, business owners, and partners.
This year, because of your generous support, we have been able to fund a wide range of environmental improvement projects around the Lake. In June, we celebrated the completion and opening of the new East Shore Trail with our partners and the donors who made it possible. With the help of over 40 partners, the Take Care Tahoe campaign grew and messaging was stronger than ever. We also launched the Smartest Forest Fund, designed to increase the innovation and technology needed to significantly increase the pace and scale of forest restoration.
For the eighth consecutive year, the Tahoe Fund was the organizing sponsor of the Tahoe Summit. Hosted by Senator Dianne Feinstein, this year’s focus gave attendees the opportunity to reflect on what has been learned, the progress made, and the challenges that lie ahead.
Our stewardship circle continues to grow. We are so thankful to our donors for their commitment which gives us the ability to plan long-term. We would also like to recognize our Green Bucks business partners for their continued efforts to help us in our mission.
Towards the end of our fiscal year, the COVID-19 pandemic struck. Even with a future that is very uncertain for many, the Tahoe Fund will continue to focus on its mission. We will continue to improve the Lake Tahoe environment now and for years to come. Through these times, we will also continue to collaborate with our more than 30 partners as they try to navigate this new world. We know that Tahoe is stronger together.
