Give Back Tahoe is TTCF’s annual, end-of-year giving campaign that raises awareness and unrestricted funds for our local nonprofits. Since 2014, TTCF’s Give Back Tahoe Giving Season has raised more than $2.5 million for local nonprofits. The platform is also available for nonprofits to use free of charge:
to raise funds as a community during the annual Give Back Tahoe Giving Season
to recruit and manage volunteers
to develop skills in fundraising, marketing, and donor cultivation using the platforms resources and training tools
Give Back Tahoe returned for the eighth year with 60 organizations competing for $50,000+ in challenge grants. Givebacktahoe.org serves as a guide to local nonprofits all year long, but there are extra incentives for donations made during the challenge grant period. By making a donation during the challenge grant period, donors help increase the odds of nonprofits winning a challenge grant.

On Giving Tuesday, 1,675 people visited the website GiveBackTahoe.org, clicked a “Donate“ button, and gave money to more than 60 participating Tahoe-Truckee nonprofits. In that one day, Give Back Tahoe raised over $214,000. Some of these folks clicked a “Fundraise” button and created, in just a few minutes, their own campaign, which they could deploy to their friends via email, Facebook, Instagram, etc. The inclusion of this social media functionality is meant to turn this web portal into a “collective giving engine.”
Donating to TTCF’s General Support Fund enables us to continue serving the place you love, and your gift can be counted as an investment in Tahoe Truckee forever. Through deep-rooted partnerships, we are able to keep our finger on the pulse of our community, which allows us to identify the greatest needs and direct these flexible resources accordingly.
The Tahoe Truckee Community Foundation (TTCF) connects people and opportunities, generating resources to build a more caring, creative, and effective community. In addition to grantmaking to our local nonprofits and providing scholarships to local students, we focus on specific initiatives such as family strengthening, housing for our local workforce and forest health.
