The Tahoe Truckee Emergency Response Fund provides flexible resources to nonprofit organizations that are directly helping the community through the COVID-19 crisis. Most of them have seen the need for their services double or triple since March with increased food insecurity, housing insecurity, childcare needs and mental health concerns. On top of this, they’ve had to adjust to virtual operations and find creative ways to make up for an estimated $7M in lost revenue from cancelled in-person fundraisers. TTCF has established this fund with flexibility to support our safety net providers and ensure they have the capacity to help our community members through this crisis.
HOW YOUR DONATION HELPS OUR COMMUNITY DURING COVID-19
In coordination with public authorities and healthcare experts leading the response to this health crisis, along with community organizations and funding partners, TTCF is responding to local needs. One hundred percent (minus credit card processing fees) of contributions to this fund will be distributed to nonprofit organizations swiftly as needs arise.
TTCF has intentionally established this fund with flexibility in mind to ensure that these resources may support our community as conditions, circumstances, and needs change throughout this crisis.
TTCF will not take administrative fees on this fund (although credit card processing fees will apply). Gifts of all sizes—big and small—make a huge difference! Please, donate now.
Local philanthropy is so important right now
COVID-19 is a global crisis. This is very different than an emergency like a catastrophic wildfire or natural disaster. At those times, people from near and far send help in the form of money and donations. Right now, communities everywhere are affected. That means that we have to come together with our neighbors, friends, and people who really love this community to help Tahoe-Truckee however we can.
This is not business as usual. Seven resorts, businesses, and restaurants are shutting down. We have one hospital and half a dozen critical needs service organizations to serve over 30,000 people. We’re about to feel the toll on our small rural system. Please help us ease the burden on our hospitals and nonprofits by responding quickly. No gift is too small. We need everybody.
