Tahoe Fund hopes to encourage new donors with Stewardship Circle and Friends of Tahoe campaigns.
The two new giving campaigns that are designed to help grow the donor base of the nonprofit organization so that it can provide more support to environmental improvement projects in the Lake Tahoe Basin.
“We are eager to connect with more of the people who love and cherish this amazing place,” said Tim Cashman, chairman of the Tahoe Fund. “With their support we can increase our impact and expand our ability to support critical environmental projects that will restore and improve the Tahoe environment.”
The Friends of Tahoe campaign hopes to leverage the support of the millions of visitors and thousands of residents who want to support preservation of the Tahoe environment. Donations of any amount are welcome.
For those interested in an ongoing partnership with the Tahoe Fund’s efforts to preserve and restore the Tahoe environment, the Fund is introducing the Stewardship Circle. Annual gifts of $5,000 or more pledged for a three-year period qualify for the Stewardship Circle. Information on all giving levels and associated benefits can be found online at www.tahoefund.org/donate.
Founded in 2010, the bi-state organization has funded high priority watershed restoration projects such as the Blackwood Creek/Eagle Rock Trail restoration on the West Shore and the Incline/3rd Creek Restoration on the North Shore; segments of the Tahoe Bikeway in Tahoe City and South Lake Tahoe; the Van-Sickle Bi-State Park in South Lake Tahoe; and the UC Davis “State of the Lake” report. The Tahoe Fund supported four 2013 Signature Projects that included beach improvements at Sand Harbor State Park, Asian Clam control in Emerald Bay, a mile of bike trail along the West Shore, and a new bridge across Angora Creek in the Washoe Meadows State Park. The Tahoe Fund 2014 Projects will be announced in late spring.
The mission of Tahoe Fund is to restore and enhance the natural environment of the Lake Tahoe Basin by building broad support and funding for projects and programs that increase the enjoyment of the region for current and future generations. The Fund focuses grants on the core areas of conservation, recreation and education/stewardship.
