Lisa Maloff’s generous donation
May 31, 2017
Ms. Lisa Maloff continues to impact the South Shore in a remarkable way. On May 18, Ms. Maloff gave a remarkable gift to the Tahoe Women's Community Fund. During the spring gala, which focused on the theme of "impact," Ms. Maloff was able to experience the loving warmth in the room after her surprise gift of $100,000 was announced.
The standing ovation that she received was only a small symbol of the gratitude that was felt by the membership. The night was filled with immense hope for the future of South Lake Tahoe. During the night, Ms. Maloff shared with me that she received her bachelor's in education and that Mr. Maloff had his mater's in social work. These educational pathways are evident in their giving and as residents of South Lake Tahoe, we are immensely grateful.
Ms. Maloff has changed this organization forever. Her gift will allow the members to vote and grant more than ever before. The growth and success of the Tahoe Women's Community Fund, in just two short years, is unprecedented. To date, the Tahoe Women's Community Fund has awarded $51,000 to South Shore nonprofits. As the first collective giving fund in South Lake Tahoe, we are eager to see what the future holds.
Ms. Maloff, thank you for believing in the Tahoe Women Community Fund's mission. We couldn't be more proud to stand by you in making the South Shore better than ever.
Sara Pierce and the TWCF Cabinet
