2022 Thanks -
On behalf of the EDSAR UAS Flight Crew, we would like to thank The Latrobe Fund for its generous Grant of $18,000 that is allowing the Drone Team to purchase a thermal imaging drone for nighttime operations.
We want to thank Latrobe Fund for a Matching Grant of 18,000 used to Purchase a Polaris General with Snow Tracks and a Trailer to transport it.
The Latrobe Fund was founded in January of 2019 by two philanthropists with residences in the Latrobe and Lake Tahoe areas. They are business owners who are making a difference for local non-profits in El Dorado County through their grants.
Currently the funding is focused on non-profits serving El Dorado County. The grant process is not competitive. Each grant request is reviewed on its own merits. There is not a specific granting cycle; grants are made at the discretion of the fund owners.
