PROFILE: Established in 1996, the Parasol Tahoe Community Foundation (PTCF) is a community foundation based in Incline Village, Nevada. This nonprofit public charity is the philanthropic center of the Tahoe region and the oldest and largest community foundation in the area. PTCF aims to build “a more prosperous community by partnering with donors to make their charitable giving more meaningful, by supporting quality programs provided by local nonprofit organizations, and by providing community leadership on emerging issues.” It funds local efforts for arts, culture, heritage, basic needs, community, education and youth development, environment, recreation, animal welfare, and health and well-being.

The Parasol Tahoe Community Foundation has a community fund grant program that supports this wide variety of issues. However, this program does not support annual fund drives, national fundraising efforts, sponsorships, debt reduction, loans or budget deficits. Meanwhile, the Lahontan Community Foundation administered by PTCF funds up to $140,000 per year to benefit the local community in the Truckee and North Tahoe region. The Donald W. Reynolds Community Non-Profit Center provides room use grants and resident grants through PTCF as well for local organizations.

Grants range between about $5,000 and $25,000. Learn more about this funder’s local giving by examining its recent tax records. Grantmaking focuses on the Lake Tahoe region of Nevada.
