Lahontan Community Foundation Fund Grants

The COVID-19 pandemic continues to create many challenges in our region. The Lahontan Community Foundation Fund has met those challenges head-on by providing emergency grants totaling $173,500 to assist with critical services and our most vulnerable populations in the North Tahoe and Truckee region.

"The Lahontan Community Foundation Fund has granted $1.8 million since its inception in 2002 to support the important work of nonprofits in the North Tahoe and Truckee community," said Suzanne Smith, Lahontan Community Foundation Fund Board President. "Our Lahontan members feel a responsibility to help preserve this area and support the local community we cherish so much. During this unprecedented pandemic, we are committed to help projects that provide food, shelter, medical and mental health services to local residents."

Our heartfelt gratitude goes out to the Lahontan Community Foundation Fund, all of its supporters, and these incredible nonprofits for helping to keep our community healthy and safe throughout this pandemic.
