Grant applications available for fall semester
SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. – The Lake Tahoe Educational Foundation announces the availability of enrichment grant applications for the fall semester.
This year the Foundation has changed the period for the acceptance of grant applications to twice a year. Grant applications for the fall are due Oct. 7. Spring applications are due on March 3.
The twice a year cycle period was implemented to allow a more equitable and efficient distribution of foundation funds, according to Nancy Rollston, president of the Lake Tahoe Educational Foundation.
Over the past years the LTEF has funded numerous grants that have supported programs in all Lake Tahoe Unified School District schools. Last year the grants funded anti-bullying programs, enrichment clubs, mad science program, music visiting professors, outdoor winter education, Sphere of Influence, and Teen Truth Anti-Bullying programs for a total of $35,530.
The primary source of funds comes from the annual Food Fest, which will be held from 6:30 – 10 p.m. Oct. 8 at Harrah’s from 6:30-10. Tickets are $35 and are available at all schools and the district office.
