Give Back Tahoe, the end-of-year giving campaign hosted by the Tahoe Truckee Community Foundation (TTCF), kicks off on Giving Tuesday and will go through December 13. When you make a donation during this time, you can increase the chances of your favorite nonprofit winning a challenge grant from the $50,000 in awards raised by TTCF.
Organizations will be competing in categories based on their size and the top three nonprofits from each category with the greatest number of donors will be awarded a challenge grant. It is not about the size of your donation, just by donating what you can afford will increase the chances of that nonprofit winning. Prizes will be awarded for Giving Tuesday and again at the end of the campaign for those who did not win a Giving Tuesday Challenge Grant.
Between the challenge grants and matching funds, this campaign helps our nonprofits close out the year and start the next one off strong. Give Back Tahoe is the official time of the year when we come together to support the nonprofits who give back to our community all year long. There will likely be some nonprofits on the website that you’ve never heard of, take the time to learn what they do and make a donation. Any amount can make a difference.
-Phyllis McConn, Community Impact Officer of TTCF
If you don’t already have a favorite nonprofit, the Give Back Tahoe website can serve as a guide to help you learn about the nonprofits and sign-up for volunteer opportunities. If you are unsure where to direct your gift, a contribution to TTCF’s General Fund will ensure your donation is directed to the areas of greatest need.
