Tahoe Donner Giving Fund Scholarships

Tahoe Truckee Community Foundation
Published on March 30, 2020

Tahoe Donner created the Tahoe Donner Giving Fund (TDGF) in early 2015, a new nonprofit program designed to make charitable contributions to benefit the greater Truckee/North Tahoe area. Participating in TDGF is on a volunteer basis and contributions are tax deductible. No funding comes from the Tahoe Donner Homeowner’s Association.

Awards two $2,000 scholarships to TTUSD graduating seniors planning to attend an approved technical, vocational, two or four-year school. A 3.0 GPA is preferred.


This generous second homeowner in Tahoe Donner wants to remain anonymous. Inspired by her neighbors at the Tahoe Donner Giving Fund and the impact of her first scholarships through TTCF, she now provides four $60,000 scholarships (or $12,000/year for up to 5 years). They are awarded to first-generation college students and intended to open up educational paths to transform their recipients’ lives forever.
