What’s Your Passion?
Do you love a good hiking trail, deeply care for the elderly, strongly support academics or sports for youth? Are you concerned about childhood obesity, women’s safety or animal rescue? Do you enjoy dance, theater or musical performances? Are you intrigued by local art, locally grown food and the history of our region?
Many folks in the Truckee-Tahoe area share your passions and have become committed to improving our community through non-profit organizations. These are the organizations that keep our neighbors, workforce and children safe and healthy. They preserve the land, restore our streams and protect our pets and wildlife. They enrich our lives with dance, music and visual arts. And, they offer both necessary and enriching education for our children.
Tahoe Donner Giving Fund
These organizations may be funded in part by grants or taxes, but none can survive without private donations. That’s where the Tahoe Donner Giving Fund comes in. Working through the Tahoe Truckee Community Foundation, Tahoe Donner property owners can contribute to the welfare of these organizations by giving as a community within our community to our community.
Some of you may serve on these nonprofit boards, help build trails or volunteer in other ways. Yet, for many second homeowners, the time spent at Tahoe Donner is precious as vacation or family time. Here is a way to become connected to and support the greater community that works so hard to make this such a special place to live, recreate and enjoy.
Gifts can be made online at ttcf.net/tahoe-donner-giving-fund/, or can be mailed to TTCF at 11071 Donner Pass Rd., Truckee, CA, 96161. Please be sure to specify that this is a gift to the Tahoe Donner Giving Fund. If you have a suggestion for your Tahoe Donner club’s involvement, please email TDGF@tahoedonner.com.
