Parasol awarded six non-profit organizations with the largest Community Fund Grants given to date. Recipients of the Parasol 2014 Community Fund Grants: Lake Tahoe Community College Foundation, North Tahoe Arts, Project MANA, High Fives Non-Profit Foundation, Tahoe Fund and Tahoe Institute for Natural Science . The organizations were honored during a special luncheon held in the Trepp Room at the Donald W. Reynolds Community Non-Profit Center.
North Tahoe Arts and Project MANA each received a $10,000 unrestricted grant for their progress, innovation and vision for the future. The other organizations each received a $7,500 unrestricted grant for showcasing effective methods of delivering programs and services and sustaining measurable results.
“This year the Community Fund grant application was designed to identify non-profit organizations that are experts in their field, providing value to our regional community culturally, educationally, environmentally, socially or through community leadership,” said Megan Weiss, Director of Program and Services. “North Tahoe Arts and Project MANA exceeded all expectations and have the potential to further improve and expand their programs and services and set a precedent in leadership, strategy and fiscal responsibility in the non-profit community.”
Congratulations to the six standout organizations selected for Parasol’s Community Fund Grants. Parasol has made a solid investment in each one and will showcase some of the programs and services they provide in future newsletters.
