Give Back Tahoe: Tahoe Forest Health System Foundation strives for collaboration and community

TRUCKEE, Calif. — Tahoe Forest Hospital was founded on philanthropy, and through continued generous support from our donors our health system is able to offer a wide variety of programs and services.

In the spirit of the Dick Joseph Family, who in 1951 donated the land upon which the Truckee campus now rests, the Tahoe Forest Health System Foundation is proud to provide resources to augment capital needs, facilitate special projects, and underwrite health and wellness programs throughout the Truckee-Tahoe community.

The Foundation relies on special fundraising events, annual appeals, major gifts, planned gifts, grants and endowments to support many important programs and services within Tahoe Forest Hospital, such as: Tahoe Forest Hospital Emergency Room; Women & Family Center; Gene Upshaw Memorial Tahoe Forest Cancer; Tahoe Forest Hospice; and Wellness Neighborhood, just to name a few.

The Tahoe Forest Health System Foundation would not be able to accomplish our work without the help of many dedicated volunteers. Our 650+ volunteers serve on boards, advisory councils, campaigns and committees. They volunteer at the hospital gift shop, Gene Upshaw Memorial Golf Classic and Best of Tahoe Chefs events.

They bestow donations from fundraising events like Bunco Bash and Yoga for Life. Regardless of what or where it is, volunteers understand what it takes to make a positive impact for our health system and we applaud their many hours of continued service and enthusiasm.

We are proud to work alongside our donors; volunteers; physicians and employees; and our friends in the community who have contributed significant resources over the years to help Tahoe Forest Health System achieve the vision “to be the Best Mountain Community Health System in the Nation.”
