Lahontan Community Foundation Fund Grants

Lahontan Community Foundation Fund 2020 grant cycle is now open!

For 18 years, the Lahontan Community Foundation Fund has been a shining example of what philanthropy is all about. This dynamic group has provided in excess of $1.8 million to local organizations in support of our youth and their education, the exceptional environment we live in, and the health and mental wellness of the North Tahoe and Truckee community, to name a few.

The Lahontan Community Foundation Fund was founded in 2002 by the members, homeowners and employees of the Lahontan Community. Each year, the Lahontan Community Foundation Fund brings the community together to have fun, and to raise money to help support the efforts of local non-profit organizations and community programs making a difference in the Truckee and North Tahoe Region.
