44 Local Nonprofits Awarded a Total of $333,855 in Grants

The 2018 consolidated grant cycle awarded 44 nonprofits $333,855  in TTCF-facilitated grants. This includes funding from Queen of Hearts Women’s Fund, Tahoe Donner Giving Fund, and a generous match from Martis Fund that once again supported our Nature Grant funding. Of the total grants, $184,455 was awarded to 28 nonprofits for  in mission-driven, unrestricted funding. These grants represent some of the most difficult funding to secure and ensure that nonprofits can keep the lights on, afford new software, receive training, or pay for anything else they need to drive their missions forward.

Eight nonprofit representatives were selected to present their grant proposals in under 3 minutes to Queen of Hearts Women’s Fund supporters. Either in person at the Annual GEMS Grants Showcase or online, supporters watched the proposals before casting their votes online across four categories. Find out who was awarded here.

TTCF has served our community for twenty years. In that time, we have provided over $27 million in grants and scholarships to the North Tahoe – Truckee region. In 2016, after an in-depth assessment and development process, TTCF consolidated all of our previous grant cycles into a streamlined process. Now, nonprofits apply to all available TTCF-facilitated grants through a single common application. Nonprofits are also encouraged to share the true scope of their needs and aspirations through the application. Thanks to the trust of our nonprofits, this helps us understand any overarching themes that are coming up for our community and allows us to better serve our region’s hardworking organizations.
