Partnerships, connections, and collaboration are essential pieces of the work we do at the Parasol Tahoe Community Foundation.

We partner with local nonprofits to help ensure our community has access to the programs and services they need and desire. We make connections between our donors and the causes they passionately support. We encourage collaboration to maximize charitable funds and create positive impact in the place we call home.

These values led us to create, the Tahoe Nonprofit Directory designed to connect nonprofit organizations with people who have a passion that match your organization's mission.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Tahoe Gives?
Tahoe Gives is a nonprofit directory, created by the Parasol Tahoe Community Foundation to connect residents, donors, volunteers, and those in need, to programs and services in the Tahoe region.
