2021-2022 Annual Giving Campaign

Tahoe Expedition Academy is proud to announce our 2021-2022 Annual Giving Campaign in support of our students, faculty, and programs.

Our theme this year is Cultivating Compassion: 100% Positive Impact. We believe that cultivating compassion has never been more important. After the challenge of the last few years, it is compassion that we most need. Compassion for ourselves, for our neighbors both near and far, and for the environment. Compassion has the power to ignite curiosity, concern, and ultimately action. For when we connect with the personal experience of another, when we take the time to walk in their metaphorical shoes, we are frequently moved to instigate change and make a positive impact.

A gift to this campaign is more than just a contribution to our robust scholarship program, our remarkable teachers, and our unique learning model, it represents hope for a kinder, more just and sustainable future.

TEA Head of School David Maher Speaks to the Impact of Your Donations


Please note that in addition to facilitating direct financial relief to affected nonprofit organizations, the CARES Act also creates charitable giving incentives for donors to 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations. Section 2205 of the CARES Act lifts the existing cap on annual contributions for those who itemize, raising it from 60 percent of adjusted gross income to 100 percent. Section 2204 of the CARES Act includes a new above-the-line deduction (universal or non-itemized deduction that applies to all taxpayers) for total charitable contributions of up to $300 for individuals and $600 for married couples filing jointly. The incentive applies to contributions made in 2021 and would be claimed on tax forms next year. We encourage you to consult your tax advisor for the tax treatment of your donation.

In order to maximize the impact of your gift to TEA, please consider mailing a check to: Tahoe Expedition Academy, Annual Giving Campaign, 9765 Schaffer Mill Road, Truckee, CA. 96161 or include an additional 3% in order to cover the credit card processing fees.
