Each year, the Lahontan Community Foundation brings local people together, to have fun and raise money to support local programs. This vibrant and generous group has supported non-profits in the Truckee and North Tahoe region since 2002, providing over $1.6 million dollars in grant funding to help support their community.
Last year, the Lahontan Community Foundation Fund awarded over $110,000. These grants helped provide transportation for underserved kids to attend summer school programs at the Boys & Girls Club, supported both Pet Network and the Humane Society of Truckee-Tahoe’s vital programs, and purchased over $18,000 worth of food for our homebound seniors. You can see a full list of last year’s recipients below.
The Lahontan Community Foundation Fund is held at the Parasol Tahoe Community Foundation. Donations to the LCF Fund are tax deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law.
