It is time to give thanks. And here at Tahoe Truckee Community Foundation we want to express to you, our gratitude! As the year winds down we want to take a moment to share some exciting news.
In 2013, TTCF will celebrate our 15th anniversary. What a great journey it has been and many of you have been with us all along the way. But even bigger news is the fact TTCF has given more than $20 million out to the community through competitive grant making, donor advised funds, and organizations like Excellence in Education, Lahontan Community Foundation and the Queen of Hearts Women's Fund.
In addition to our impactful grantmaking together, TTCF has built a legacy of assets that will be here in the North Tahoe region, well into the future. They are a testament to the trust and relationship we have built with each of you. These hard earned and generously shared dollars represent the vision and commitment for our entire community.
And yet, there continues to be so much more need. We see it every day in the shadow communities with families working hard to survive, in the grant proposals from our nonprofits, and the day-to-day challenges faced by our community institutions as resources shift and disappear.
This makes it easy to reconfirm why TTCF exists, why we need a Center for Philanthropy in the North Tahoe Region. The continued growth of these philanthropic assets is the heartbeat of our mission. That focus, to attract more resources for the important work of our nonprofit sector, is the passion and the charge of our CEO, Stacy Caldwell. Stacy has been working hard these last several months getting to know the community, meeting the citizens and leaders, and building a strategy with the board to accomplish just that.
We want to thank you for being a part of this great achievement these last 15 years, but we want to invite you to be a part of our next 15 years!
