Since 2002, the Parasol Tahoe Community Foundation has provided more than $10 million in grant value through the Donald W. Reynolds Community Non-Profit Center Grant Programs for resident office space, storage space, and meeting room use. We continue to support our local non-profits through this innovative grant program into 2018. We provide operational support by providing the resident organizations with furnished office space, the cost of utilities and much more, allowing donations to these organizations to go where it counts – to people and programs.
