Privacy Policy

This website is owned and operated by Tahoe Truckee Community Foundation. Our intention is to inform and educate visitors about our work as a grantmaker, community resource, and philanthropic partner to local individuals, families, and corporations. Tahoe Truckee Community Foundation is committed to honoring the privacy of all those we work with, including visitors to our website and subscribers to our electronic newsletters.


Personal Information

Your right to privacy is very important to us. We recognize that providing Tahoe Truckee Community Foundation with your personal information is an act of trust. When you visit Tahoe Truckee Community Foundation online, you remain anonymous, as we do not require registration to view our website or access information.

We may occasionally ask for your feedback via surveys or other communications to better understand your interests and needs. We will also request information through online forms used to register for a Tahoe Truckee Community Foundation event or request use of our conference facilities. Tahoe Truckee Community Foundation does not share or make public any personal information gathered through our website.

If you are a Tahoe Truckee Community Foundation fund holder and you use our online system, you provide personal information to authenticate your identity. That information is only used on this site and is not distributed or sold to any other party or site. Our secure system for donors is encrypted with Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) to provide security and privacy when you access fund information, initiate online fund transactions or send secure messages.

If you submit any Personal Information relating to other people to us in connection with the Site, you represent that you have the authority to do so and to permit Tahoe Truckee Community Foundation to use the information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.


Public Information

Under IRS Code, the following foundation documents are public information:

  • IRS Forms 990 and affiliated schedules for the past three years.
  • Exemption letter from the IRS.
  • Approved application for exemption with supporting documentation.

Lists of our donors, other than those published in the annual report, are not available to the public. We do not reveal the name of anonymous donors to the recipient of a grant.

Third-Party Services

This Privacy Policy does not address, and we are not responsible for, the privacy, information or other practices of any third parties, including any third party operating any website or service to which the Site links. Please review any third-party privacy policies to learn how they handle your Personal Information. The inclusion of a link on the Site does not imply endorsement of the linked site or service by Tahoe Truckee Community Foundation.

Third-Party Payment Services

We may use third-party payment services to process donations or other payments made through the Site. If you wish to make a donation or other payment through the Site, your Personal Information will be collected by the third-party payment service and will be subject to that third party’s privacy policy, rather than this Privacy Policy.


We seek to use reasonable organizational, technical and administrative measures to protect Personal Information within our organization. Unfortunately, no data transmission or storage system can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. If you have reason to believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure, please immediately notify us in accordance with the “Contact Information” section below.

Sensitive Information

Unless we specifically request it, we ask that you do not send us, and you do not disclose, any sensitive Personal Information (e.g., social security numbers, information related to racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religion or other beliefs, health, biometrics or genetic characteristics, or criminal background) on or through the Site or otherwise to Tahoe Truckee Community Foundation.

Choices and Access

If at any time you wish to stop receiving Tahoe Truckee Community Foundation’s electronic newsletters or other communications, or to be removed from our email list, you may unsubscribe from that list as explained in each message. We will try to comply with your request(s) as soon as reasonably practicable. Please note that if you opt out of receiving promotional emails from us, we may still send you important administrative messages, from which you cannot opt out.

Updates to this Privacy Policy

We may change this Privacy Policy from time to time. The “Last Updated” legend at the top of this Privacy Policy indicates when this policy was last revised. Any changes will become effective when we post the revised Privacy Policy on the Site. Your use of the Site following these changes means that you accept the revised Privacy Policy.
