Grant cycle opens

Lake Tahoe Educational Foundation is now accepting applications for its fall grant cycle. Applications are available online on the organization’s website and are due Sept. 26.

To provide more opportunities to apply, the nonprofit foundation that supports educational enrichment programs for the Lake Tahoe Unified School District opened the grant cycle to two applications periods, fall and spring. The foundation provides $40,000 to $60,000 annually in enrichment grants. The money is raised through Snow Sports week in February, an annual mail solicitation and through the group’s signature fundraiser in October the Food Fest.

Programs funded during the spring grant cycle included district wide programs such as Farm Day, Wonders of Water, Outdoor Explore, and Children’s Forest. The foundation is a public, non-profit organization run by a 26 member volunteer board and operates with no administrative costs. The spring due date for grant applications is March 6, 2015.

Food Fest takes place Oct. 11 from 6:30 to 10 p.m. at Harrah’s Convention Center. Tickets will be available at all school district sites in September.
