The Tahoe Fund, according to a statement on their website, was “…founded in 2010,  as a registered non-profit corporation in the States of  Nevada and California. The purpose of the Tahoe Fund is to become a major source of private funding for environmental projects around the Lake Tahoe Basin with an emphasis on recreation, conservation and education.”

To that end, they’ve raised quite a bit of money and launched numerous projects around the lake. They are currently asking for proposals that will help solve the many environmental challenges facing Lake Tahoe.

Here’s what they are looking for:  “The Tahoe Fund seeks projects for its 2018 Signature and Premier Project Portfolios that will improve Lake Tahoe’s environment, reduce the risk of wildfire, and address climate change by enhancing water quality, restoring watersheds, creating healthier forests, improving transportation and fostering outdoor recreation.  The Tahoe Fund also seeks to build a greater sense of stewardship in the Tahoe Basin.” Fundraising goals run from $5,000 to $1,000,000.

Interested? If your organization is looking to participate,  submit your project ideas by January 31, 2018 at http://www.tahoefund.org/our-projects/submit-a-project/.
