This is the place to learn about all the opportunities to give back to the place you love. Here you can donate to the causes you are passionate about and research opportunities to volunteer in North Tahoe-Truckee.


More than 1/3 of all charitable contributions are given during the last three months of the year. This generosity is imperative to helping nonprofits reach their year-end goals. Tahoe Truckee Community Foundation and Sierra Sun partner during this special tim eof year in order to showcase many of the outstanding nonprofit organizations that serve our region and to encourage our larger community to come together in support of cultivating a unique and vibrant nonprofit community. This Season of Giving centers around the Give Back Tahoe Giving Guide and celebrates gratitude and community connection by letting people Give Back to Tahoe and the organizations that make it so great. 

The Giving Guide is both a printed directory and online portal to provide nonprofits the opportunity to gain exposure to- and start relationships with- new donors. For most, the end of the year marks a time for reflection and gathering with loved ones and neighbors.  It is also an opportunity to strengthen and support our community.  The third annual Giving Guide will launch on #GivingTuesday November 29th and run until 11:59pm on Friday December 31st. That's over a month of giving! 

To reward nonprofits and their donors for exemplary fundraising efforts, we are also facilitating two weeks of Challenge Grants! From #GivingTuesday, November 29th, through Tuesday December 13th, there will be tens of thousands of dollars on the giving table for nonprofits to earn for specific challenges. We can't wait to announce these!  

We are proud to be a part of such a fantastic and altruistic region, and we want to share it with everyone who shares our love for Tahoe! 

Participate in our giving season by sharing the Giving Guide with your friends and family, donating to our local nonprofits, or offering your time by volunteering. By donating to the causes you care about through this website, we measure our collective year-end giving to see just how big of an impact each of us can have when we rally around the things that matter most to us. No matter how much you have to give, from $10 to $10 million, our collective efforts will make a real impact. You can even track your favorite nonprofits' progress and watch your donation grow.  If you have any comments or questions, please feel free to contact us at [email protected]
