We are better together
Our community continues to prove that every day! We are grateful for the incredible amount of support during these challenging times.
Last week, Parasol presented a $50,000 matching opportunity for the Tahoe Together Community Support Fund to our donor-advised fund holders. They immediately rose to the challenge and met the match in less than two days! These matching funds, along with additional donations from our thoughtful and generous community, allowed us to deploy the first round of grants totaling $102,500 to local nonprofits working diligently to protect our community and take care of our friends and neighbors when they are most fragile.
These initial grants, that we have outlined below, will address immediate basic needs, providing food security and emergency financial assistance to those in need. In addition, these grants will provide critical support for our local hospitals by helping to provide personal protective equipment, additional patient ventilators, and to assist with emergency staffing needs.
As we are all aware, challenges continue to surface, and we may have a long way to go, but we will go together. In order to build the Tahoe Together Community Support Fund and enhance our ability to address the needs of the Tahoe region, Parasol has identified an additional $50,000 in matching funds. We will continue to match each donation and support our community in every way possible, and we need your help! Please consider a donation to the Tahoe Together Community Support Fund today
