The Tahoe Donner Giving Fund was created in 2014 by the Tahoe Donner Association board to pool donations from homeowners to support the good work of local non-profits and provide deserving graduating high school students with scholarships to advance their education. Each year, working as an affiliate fund of the Truckee Tahoe Community Foundation [EIN 68-0416404], we provide funding to help those in need, support our youth, protect special places, and make our lives better.

Thanks to all of our generous donors, including those who “voted” with their donations for Tahoe Donner Dog Mayor candidates, the Tahoe Donner Giving Fund Summer 2023 Fundraising Campaign raised more than $40,000 to support scholarships to local students and grants to local nonprofit organizations.


Every donation makes a difference! All donations to the Tahoe Donner Giving Fund support local students and nonprofit organizations. Your contribution makes our community a better place to live, work, and play.
