Give Back with the Tahoe Donner Giving Fund

Tahoe Donner created the Tahoe Donner Giving Fund (TDGF) in early 2015, a new non-profit program designed to make charitable contributions to benefit the greater Truckee/North Tahoe area. Participating in TDGF is on a volunteer basis and contributions are tax deductible. No funding comes from the Tahoe Donner Homeowner’s Association.

Administered by a board committee, the Tahoe Donner Giving Fund Operations and Grant committee, which is made up of Tahoe Donner members in good standing who recommend support for the following local areas of interest:
• Health and Human Services
• Environment, Conservation and Animal Welfare
• Education and Youth Development
• Arts and Culture

The board appointed the initial committee members to include: Merle Fajans and Dick Gander as Co-Chairs, Barbara Czerwinski, Marilyn Disbrow, Jennifer Jordan, Suzanne Sullivan, and Janet Zipser Zipkin. There are three open seats on the committee; contact Dick Gander at tdgf@tahoedonner.com to volunteer.

The Tahoe Truckee Community Foundation (TTCF) provides all legal, accounting and investment services for the TDGF. In addition, they assist with the grant process to local non-profit organizations.

Given the large size of the Tahoe Donner membership, it will be possible to make a substantial contribution to local charities with even small contributions from individual members – if a significant percentage of homeowners choose to participate. The Tahoe Donner Giving Fund has the potential to be one of the largest charitable funds in the area, giving community support to programs that need it the most. Tahoe Donner and the TDGF committee look forward to the endless possibilities coming to the community this year.

Contact the committee via email at tdgf@tahoedonner.com for more information.

Would you like to receive a weekly delivery of fresh, seasonal produce, locally grown and straight from the farm?

The CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) program is steadily picking up momentum with more participants joining the program each week! The CSA winter program currently runs for 24 weeks for veggies (deliveries through May 14, 2015) and 17 weeks for fruit (deliveries through March 25, 2015). Box varieties are delivered to the Trout Creek Recreation Center and will be available for pickup anytime between 2-10 p.m. on Thursdays, starting Nov. 20 (one week before Thanksgiving).

By participating in a CSA Program you have a direct relationship with the local Mountain Bounty Farm which delivers fresh produce on a weekly basis straight from the farm. See Mountain Bounty Farm for more details.

Interested? It’s not too late to join. Sign up here or contact Dana with Member Services at 530-582-9656 or via email at dherlihy@tahoedonner.com.
