Caring for Others

To empower all young people to reach their full potential through education, relationships, life-enhancing programs, good citizenship and character development. Focus on educational attainment and good citizenship.
3. Kirkwood Locals – helping our youth development
The Kirkwood Ski Team mission is to provide alpine ski racing programs that promote a healthy lifestyle, instills a winning spirit, and a love of mountain snow sports through professional athletic skill development. We are focused on competitive alpine ski racing and guided by five fundamentals. Each is equally important and interdependent.
Our mission is to improve the lives of those living on the streets through the power of youth.
Most ski resorts have a lost and found overflowing with warm clothing that frequently gets thrown out. We distribute these unclaimed clothes to keep our homeless community members warm and protected. Some supporters are Kirkwood’s Daron Rahlves, Laurie Hindes, Avis Jolly and Paul Bradshaw.
4. Animal Rescue – animal lovers take this chance to help furry friends
In pursuit of our mission to rescue, rehabilitate and release orphaned and injured wildlife, our primary concern is the wellbeing of wild animals & birds. Lake Tahoe Wildlife Care is committed to effective, scientifically informed, and compassionate wild animal care practices, training, and educational outreach that promote the health and safety of our region’s wildlife, thereby helping to create and maintain thriving natural environments.
5. Our Beautiful Natural Resources – keep our mountains growing naturally
We are dedicated to restoring sugar pines and other white pines in the Lake Tahoe region and beyond. By educating and involving local volunteers of all ages in hands-on forest stewardship, we are conserving these important native species for future generations to enjoy.
The emigrant trails in Northern California and Northern Nevada are the main focus of the California-Nevada Chapter. The principal goal is to identify, map, and preserve the hundreds of miles of trail within California and Nevada while educating the public about this rich heritage. The Carson River Route goes right through Kirkwood (West Pass which is right at Chair 4 toward Melissa Coray Peak) and in the late 1990’s regular hikes, education and maintenance occurred.
The Tahoe Fund envisions a Lake Tahoe where the natural and human environments are in balance and a growing community of passionate supporters enjoy and cherish this mountain treasure.
6. Women’s Community – bringing us together
Live Violence Free is the sole provider offering services to those individuals and families suffering from abuse within the communities of South Lake Tahoe and Alpine County. We are committed to promoting a violence-free community through education and advocacy to address domestic violence, sexual assault, child abuse, and basic needs.
The Tahoe Women’s Community Fund is a collective giving organization created in 2015. Through a simple grant making process, the annual proceeds from membership provide financial support to nonprofits that address pressing issues facing the communities of Lake Tahoe.
