STATELINE, Nev. (AP) — Singer-songwriter Jack Johnson is donating thousands of dollars to environmental groups at Lake Tahoe ahead of a pair of weekend concerts on the shores of the mountain lake.

The Johnson Ohana Foundation created by Johnson and his wife, Kim, has donated $4 million to 400 nonprofits worldwide since 2008 in support of the environmental, arts and music education.

Johnson recently announced he would make matching donations up to $2,500 to The League to Save Lake Tahoe, Tahoe Rim Association. Sugar Pine Foundation and Sierra Watershed Education Partnerships.

League Director Erica Mirich told the Tahoe Daily Tribune (http://tinyurl.com/y8rh8p46) her group reached the goal the first day and has raised $8,500 in matching funds. The newspaper reported Wednesday the three other organizations are nearing their donation goals.

Friday and Saturday's concerts at Harveys Outdoor Arena in Stateline are sold out.
