The Excellence in Education Foundation raises money to provide grants in support of educational programs within the Tahoe Truckee Unified School District through community partnerships. These partnerships have resulted in the success of our popular, long-standing fundraising programs: Dining for Schools, Golfing for Schools and Skiing for Schools. Individual contributions are also welcomed and greatly appreciated through the Foundation’s Friends of Education donation program.
Dining for Schools
More than 40 local restaurants partner with the Foundation for the Dining for Schools program. Each Dining for Schools card entitles the bearer to a half-off entrée during the fall and spring.
Golfing for Schools
Our golf partners generously donate 275 rounds each to the Golfing for Schools program. Each pass entitles the bearer to 18 holes of golf at seven courses during specified times during the season. Golfing for Schools has raised over $1,400,500 for the Foundation to date. Partners include: Coyote Moon Golf Course, Gray’s Crossing Golf Course, Northstar Golf Course, Old Greenwood Golf Course, Resort at Squaw Creek Golf Course, Tahoe City Golf Course and Tahoe Donner Golf Course.
Skiing for Schools
Each year, our ski resort partners set aside special Skiing for Schools days to benefit the Foundation. These dedicated benefactors provide either discounted lift tickets or a portion of the day’s total revenue to demonstrate their commitment to education in our community. Skiing for Schools has raised more than $1,448,500 to date. Partners include: Homewood Mountain Resort, Northstar California, Royal Gorge Cross Country, Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows, Sugar Bowl, Tahoe Donner and Tahoe XC.
