Lahontan Community Foundation Fund Awards $113,500 in Emergency Grants to Local Nonprofits

The Lahontan Community Foundation Fund Grants' Committee has been working closely with the Parasol Tahoe Community Foundation for the past several weeks to identify and support the most urgent needs of the North Tahoe and Truckee region.

To help address the emergency situation our region is currently facing, the Lahontan Community Foundation Fund recently issued $113,500 in emergency funding. This funding will assist with critical services including support for the Tahoe Forest Hospital to address health care needs brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic, emergency assistance for seniors, families, individuals, and their pets in this time of need, as well as mental health services for at-risk youth.

"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."
