Shared nonprofit facility considered for Truckee, meeting April 10

Special to the Sun

TRUCKEE, Calif. and#8212; On April 10, 2012, nonprofit organizations and community members may learn about a plan to develop a nonprofit center in Truckee. The Contractors Association of Truckee Tahoe (CATT) is exploring the opportunity to develop the center to house CATTand#8217;s offices and other organizations.

Nonprofit centers are buildings that intentionally house more than one nonprofit organization for the purpose of creating economic efficiencies, increasing collaboration and better serving the community. The public meeting on Tuesday, April 10, 3-5 p.m., Truckee Donner Public Utility District Board Room, 11570 Donner Pass Road, Truckee will focus on the benefits and impacts a nonprofit center could have in the Truckee Tahoe region, as well as opportunities to partner with CATT on this project.

The Nonprofit Centers Network, a national leader with more than a decade of experience in creating and operating nonprofit centers, will present the benefits of shared workspace and lessons learned from more than 200 successful nonprofit center models in operation across North America.

Parking for the event is along Donner Pass Road. Please do not park in the TDPUD lot.

To RSVP, contact Maria Martinez at mmartinez@tides.org or 415-561-6365.
