Inspiring Thoughtful Giving

Chances are you already support the organizations and issues you care about by giving to them directly. Now you’re ready to consider creating a private foundation or charitable fund to continue your giving today and over time.

Whether that means putting your money to work immediately or building a permanent endowment, we can help. Since 1998, thousands of permanent residents, part time residents, and lovers of the Tahoe region have trusted Tahoe Truckee Community Foundation to manage and distribute their charitable gifts.

We offer a variety of charitable funds and trusts to help you meet your financial and charitable goals. You receive maximum tax advantages and have access to our knowledge of the community and nonprofit organizations. We handle the administrative details and provide prompt service and grant support so you can focus on the more rewarding aspects of giving such as supporting  causes and institutions that are important to you and your family – in your neighborhood or around the world.

Tahoe Truckee Community Foundation embraces and empowers the diversity of beliefs, perspectives and experiences of donors as they seek to improve the community and the region, as well as supporting charitable causes around the world.  Please let us know how we may be of assistance in inspiring your own thoughtful giving.
