We are a group of Incline Village residents who believe we can make a significant impact on enhancing our community.

Throughout our lives and careers, we have made it a priority to give back to the communities and people who surround us.  As strong advocates of creating a healthy, clean environment, years ago we began collecting litter on our twice-daily walks.  Soon we began to wonder, what if we could recruit other volunteers to do the same thing and really make a difference!

As we made our circuits through various neighborhoods, we also thought about how small enhancement projects might be able to make a huge difference in beautifying our village.  Soon our thoughts turned to another way to positively impact the community; that is, by supporting community social events that bring our neighbors together.


This is how the Incline Village Enhancement Fund was born.  We hope you will be inspired to participate, either by volunteering to collect trash, coming up with enhancement project ideas or community social events, or by donating to allow these efforts to be realized.

Please take a moment to review all these options by following the links on the Home Page.  We look forward to hearing from you.
