Help Others Have a Happy Holiday



We’ve teamed up with Toys for Tots and Truckee Community Christmas again this holiday season in an effort to help kids, families, adults and seniors have a happier holiday season. Join our efforts:

Toys for Tots

Year after year, the U.S. Marine Corps Toys for Tots Foundation collects toys for under-privileged children so they too can have a happy holiday. Between Nov. 11 and Dec. 12, we are collecting new and unwrapped toys in their original packaging at The Lodge Restaurant and Pub, daily from 4-9 p.m.

Truckee Community Christmas

For over 25 years, Truckee Community Christmas has been providing help to local individuals and families identified as the most in need during the holiday season. Between Nov. 28 and Dec. 14, we are collecting non-perishable food items, grocery store gift cards, and toys at Member Services, located inside Northwoods Clubhouse, daily from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Gifts for teenagers are especially needed.

We thank you in advance for your effort to help these great causes!

Video: General Plan Committee



The General Plan Committee, or GPC, is the team of volunteers that leads the efforts for Tahoe Donner Association’s capital projects process. They are homeowners, just like you, and they gather and consider all your ideas, form task forces to do more research, and work with staff, homeowners, the board of directors, and outside consultants to make recommendations.

Watch this video to see an overview of the whole process.

The GPC wants to hear from you! Ideas are submitted by members, amenity users, Tahoe Donner board, staff and others for consideration by the general plan committee (GPC) on an ongoing basis. These ideas are documented on the Wish List, evaluated and prioritized quarterly. You can submit your ideas here.

Some ideas move forward while others do not, but all are considered according to common sense, objective criteria and the considerable experience of the evaluation team consisting of the GPC Chair, the general manager and the board of directors liaison to the GPC.

You can submit your ideas here or send an email with any suggestions to the GPC.
