Supporting the people and places of Tahoe

Donald W. Reynolds Community Nonprofit Center

The purpose of the Donald W. Reynolds Community Nonprofit Center (DWR Center) is to provide an economical and collaborative environment for nonprofit organizations. Since 2002, Parasol has operated the DWR Center as an innovative grant program providing nonprofit organizations with furnished office space, secure storage space and access to professional meeting rooms and event space. Operational support through the DWR Center grant programs has allowed local organizations to focus their fundraising efforts on supporting people and programs, increasing the quality and quantity of services available in our community. These grants are awarded to nonprofit, public charities and are annually renewable.

DWR Center Resident Organizations

Nine local nonprofit organizations currently call the DWR Center home. With Parasol’s DWR Center Resident Grants covering a significant portion of their overhead, this allows community donations to have a greater direct impact on improving programs and services in our community. We encourage you to join us in supporting these quality organizations.
