Excellence in Education is a non-profit foundation that enhances public education by strengthening the learning experiences for students within the Tahoe Truckee Unified School District.

Each year, the Excellence in Education Foundation partners with local businesses and the community to raise money and provide over $250,000 in classroom grants, resources, and partnerships to benefit students and teachers in a school district that encompasses 12 schools in a geographic area of 720 square miles.

To date, Excellence in Education has funded more than $3 million in educational grants that support TTUSD. Grant monies support programs that are specifically designed to promote student interest in learning, to give students hands-on learning experiences, and to encourage quality academic performance.
