Our families need stability

Accessing services is difficult in Rural America. Since 2017, we have helped the Katz-Amsterdam Foundation invest over $400,000 in health and critical services for families and residents.

How we strengthen our families

Impact Investing

Our Region Needs Investment

Our economy can’t rely on snowpack anymore. We invest in our community’s future through projects that promise to have a big social and environmental impact.

Where we put our dollars in impact investments
Losing a single nonprofit means the loss of decades of resources, a piece of our social fabric that is unraveled. TTCF recognizes these dollars won't solve the crisis, but they can give these hardworking organizations the push they need to survive. https://t.co/VKletUXCro

TTCF creates unparalleled and integrated community services, develops creative and impactful giving programs, and creates numerous outreach programs to touch SO many here in Tahoe-Truckee.
