THE GIVING FUND
The Tahoe Donner Giving Fund was created in 2014 by the Tahoe Donner Association board to pool gifts from homeowners to support the good work of local non-profits and provide deserving graduating high school students with scholarships to advance their educations. Each year, working through the Truckee Tahoe Community Foundation, we provide funding to help those in need, support our youth, protect special places, and make our lives better.
We are very grateful to Jaime Waltman Legere of Waltman Construction for her support from the inception of the Giving Fund – and now to Jaime and Matt Warren through their combined company, Elements Mountain Co. Annually they contribute over $5,000, which covers all our operating expenses thus making 100% of your contributions available for grants and scholarships.
The Giving Fund operates as an affiliate fund of the Tahoe Truckee Community Foundation (TTCF) who holds the 501(c)3. Donations are tax-deductible as allowed by law; donors receive a tax receipt for this purpose.
