Tahoe-Truckee community comes together for annual Giving Guide

Staff report

The Give Back Tahoe Giving Guide starts on November 29th, or " #GivingTuesday" — the international day of giving, and runs through December 31st to elevate the missions and impact of 61 participating nonprofits who serve our region.

Tahoe Truckee Community Foundation (TTCF) and Sierra Sun have partnered for the third year in a row to host this collective giving campaign which raised over $355,000 last year alone.

Through a printed nonprofit directory, an online giving portal at http://www.givebacktahoe.org, social media, and with our partners at Truckee Tahoe Radio 101.5 KTKE, we are reaching those who love Tahoe-Truckee to support and co-create our community. We believe that a community decides together, one person at a time, one action and word at a time, what it values and how it will shape its future.

A huge part of what makes life here so fantastic is our nonprofit community. Some of organizations are large, and others are driven by only one or two people. Together, they strive to take care of each other, protect our environment, inspire our community, and educate our next generation.

The Giving Guide began in 2014. As a community, we've seen the value of this program to both support our nonprofits, and to draw our community members and visitors even closer to the heart and soul of our home.

This year, we hope to continue to manifest greater awareness of our nonprofits and to connect those who want to give back to the causes in which they most believe.
