Founded in 1989, the Lake Tahoe Educational Foundation has dedicated itself to excellence in education by helping to support the educational programs and needs of the Lake Tahoe Unified School District in South Lake Tahoe, California. The Foundation is a public, non-profit organization run by a 21 member volunteer board with no overhead administrative costs. The school district has a population of over 4,000 students in Kindergarten through Grade 12. The Lake Tahoe Educational Foundation (LTEF) provides funds to all schools to support enrichment programs. This is done through a fall season grant request process. LTEF provides $40,000 to $60,000 each year in enrichment grants.

2018 Grant Application available now. Deadline to submit Sept. 14, 2018 by midnight.
