Tahoe Truckee Community Foundation connects people and opportunities, generating resources to build a more caring, creative, and effective community.

Our priority is to drive community engagement to a higher level, and to connect people with their philanthropic interests. TTCF has been building philanthropy in North Tahoe through its work with donors, nonprofits and communities for 20 years. Established through the vision of William Hewlett and the commitment of community leaders throughout the region, the Foundation serves thousands of people who share a common passion for the Truckee Tahoe region.

Individuals, families, businesses, and organizations create charitable funds that help meet the challenges of the region. Today, the Foundation’s assets of over $27 million are held in stewardship for more than 3,000 donors.

Tahoe Truckee Community Foundation grants impact the life of every full time resident, part time resident, and visitor to our community. We make grants in the areas of:

  • Arts and culture

  • Education and youth development

  • Environment, conservation, and animal welfare

  • Health and human services

Since opening our doors in 1998, TTCF has awarded over $30 million in grants and scholarships. The foundation depends on volunteers to help review grants and community members to build the philanthropic resources so vital to this precious region.

Tahoe Truckee Community Foundation is the center for philanthropy in North Lake Tahoe. We will continue that leadership even more vigorously in the future. Find out more about us here!
