The Parasol Tahoe Community Foundation was founded in 1996 to serve the Lake Tahoe community by promoting philanthropy and non-profit collaboration. The Foundation exists not to support a single organization, but to address the broadest range of charitable issues by building a perpetual source of community capital. The Foundation manages charitable funds for individuals, families, businesses and organizations that turn to the Parasol Tahoe Community Foundation to help fulfill their philanthropic intent.
To donors, the Foundation represents an effective and innovative giving vehicle, one that combines maximum tax savings with the opportunity to make a difference – forever – for those in the Tahoe Region.
To non-profits, the Foundation addresses community needs through grants along with operating the Donald W. Reynolds Non-Profit Center. It increases the capacity and effectiveness of organizations and improves the quality of life in the region.
To the community, the Foundation provides leadership in the Lake Tahoe Basin as an effective, independent arena for addressing difficult issues and advocating for needed programs, services or policies.
