Hyatt awards $10,000 to League to Save Lake Tahoe
SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. – Hyatt Hotels and Resorts, through the efforts of Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe Resort, Spa and Casino, announced today that it has awarded to the League to Save Lake Tahoe with a significant grant of $10,000 to further educate the public about Lake Tahoe and continue the organization’s dedicated efforts in preserving the overall beauty of the lake.
“We are honored to support the League to Save Lake Tahoe and their valuable contributions to our community,” said Fred Findlen, general manager of Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe Resort, Spa and Casino. “It is a top priority for us to be active participants in our area, and Hyatt Community Grants gives us the great opportunity to give back to the local organizations that do so much for our community.”
As key supporters of the League to Save Lake Tahoe’s ongoing mission, Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe employees have inspired ecofriendly responsibility through environmental cleanups and other various sustainable deeds in efforts to maintain a healthy and clean lake. With this generous grant, Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe hopes to influence others to be environmental stewards of the next generation.
“Receiving this grant is a great honor, and we are thankful that Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe nominated our organization to be the recipient of this generous donation,” said Bob Damaschino, president of the League to Save Lake Tahoe. “We know this grant will go a long way in helping us achieve our goals of protecting and preserving the ecosystem’s health and scenic beauty of the Lake Tahoe Basin.”
Hyatt Community Grants encourages hotels around the world to identify and nominate local nonprofits for funding consideration through Hyatt Hotels Foundation. The program builds on Hyatt’s belief that no one better understands a community’s most pressing issues – and its solutions – than those that live and work there.
Funding for this program is provided by Hyatt Hotels Foundation, a donor advised fund created in conjunction with the National Philanthropic Trust. Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe is among 27 Hyatt properties from around the world that will award grants to nonprofits in their local communities. Since the program’s inception in 2008, Hyatt hotels have awarded more than $1,054,000 to nonprofit organizations in 84 communities and 30 countries around the world.
