Tahoe Fund gets $50,000 grant for environmental innovation

The Tahoe Fund’s plans to bring innovation to the environmental challenges facing Lake Tahoe got a big boost last week from the Robert and Dorothy Keyser Foundation with a $50,000 matching grant.

According to a news release, the matching grant is for the Tahoe Fund’s new Environmental Venture Trust, a program designed to provide early stage seed funding to innovative projects around the Tahoe Basin.

Tahoe Fund is seeking donations to secure the full matching grant so it can begin soliciting ideas for innovative pilot projects.

The focus will be on the areas of highest concern in Tahoe, including the recent announcement of 66 million dead trees in the Sierra Nevada forests, the expansion of aquatic invasive species throughout the watershed, the continued challenge to maintain and improve the Lake’s famed water clarity, transportation challenges, outdoor recreation expansion and stewardship.
