Grants to Nevada and California nonprofit organizations for projects and programs serving the North Lake Tahoe-Truckee region . Funding is intended for arts and culture; education; health and human services; animal welfare; community improvement; environment, conservation, recreation; and youth development. Eligible areas include Donner Summit, Truckee, and Squaw Valley in California; and the west and north shores of Lake Tahoe, including Incline Village, in Nevada.

All proposals for the Community Grant Cycle must:

  • Show community benefit and/or support
  • Not supplant funds or duplicate services
  • If applicable, have a plan to support the proposal after the grant term

TTCF will still be awarding various types of grants. The first is the more typical Program/Project grant. These grants generally go toward either hard costs or staffing costs to support, launch, expand or advance the measurable impact of specific projects or programs. Environmental program/project grants are subject to additional eligibility requirements. Please see the specific criteria for these Nature grants. The Foundation will also be awarding Capacity Building grants (for example, funding for strategic planning, board development and governance, marketing and communication, fundraising, financial reporting, evaluation and more) and Mission Driven grants (an unrestricted, trust-based grant to further a nonprofit mission).

For further requirements for Nature Grants, please see:

out of region organizations/fiscal sponsors unless otherwise negotiated

Pre-Application Information:

Applications may be submitted starting Thursday, August 1st and are due Monday, September 2, 2019, by midnight and will only be accepted online.

Nonprofits need only apply once for a consolidated grant cycle offering at least $300,000 in available to grant funds. Grant committee members from Queen of Hearts Women’s Fund, Tahoe Donner Giving Fund, Open Competitive and Nature Fund will then jointly review proposals and direct them to aligned funding sources for further consideration.

Foundation staff will review applications to determine that the request is complete and conforms to TTCF’s basic policies, goals, objectives, and areas of focus. Staff and members of the Grants Committee may research your request through Guidestar and internet searches, telephone inquiries, meetings, and/or site visits.

The Board of Directors makes all funding decisions based on recommendations by the Grants Committee. Applicants
will receive a response to grant requests within 6-8 weeks, with grant checks processed by year-end.
