$40,000 Raised for Giving Guide Challenge Grants!

Amp up the Holiday Cheer.

Tahoe Truckee Community Foundation (TTCF) and Sierra Sun are twelve days away from launching our second annual Give Back Tahoe Guide for Giving.  73 local nonprofits have signed up this year to participate in the collective giving campaign which will run from December 1, #GivingTuesday, through December 31st.  During the Season of Giving, our nonprofit community works together to elevate one another’s missions and end-of-year campaigns with a printed directory and a shared giving site, www.givebacktahoe.org.

What may be the most exciting addition to this year’s Giving Season are the TTCF Challenge Grants.  Thanks to the generosity of TTCF donors, an additional $40,000 is on the table to reward nonprofit organizations for exemplary fundraising efforts.  This puts the power in YOUR hands to support your favorite local nonprofits.  How can you play for the causes that matter most to your heart?  Tune into 101.5 KTKE, check Sierra Sun, like and follow TTCF and your favorite nonprofits on social media.
