Considered one of the most beautiful places on the planet, the Tahoe-Truckee region nonetheless faces real challenges. Tahoe Truckee Community Foundation plays a vital part in meeting the needs of local residents and nurturing the natural environment.

Since 1998, TTCF has matched “generous people with great ideas.” The foundation works with the public, private, and philanthropic sectors, identifying regional needs and finding creative ways to make a big difference in the community.

Its projects and programs include the Community Collaborative of Tahoe Truckee, which helps traing nonprofit professional; Forest Futures, which studies solutions for the region’s ailing forests; and the Queen of Hearts Women’s Fund, which has raised more than $1.3 million for an endowed fund. 

Since 2014, a major focus has been Give Back Tahoe, TTCF’s annual end-of-year giving campaign, which raises awareness and unrestricted funds for its nonprofits between Dec. 1-15. The platform is also available for nonprofits to use free of charge to raise funds, recruit and manage volunteers, and develop skills in fundraising, marketing, and donor cultivation.
