Give Back Tahoe – Raise the Bar Challenge December 5th

Your generosity is so appreciated! On Tuesday, December 5th for 24 hours, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Nevada County and North Lake Tahoe will be participating in the Raise the Bar Challenge.  Here’s how it works – from among those of you who give $250 or more during this time, donors will be randomly chosen and dollars will be added to their donation!

This is the third year that Tahoe Truckee Community foundation’s generous donors have come together to offer Challenge Grants…what a wonderful way to boost the donation dollars during the first half of the Giving Season!

To learn more about our organization please follow the link below:

You may donate online directly on December 5th or at any time!

Recurring Investments in Mentoring

To enable our continued growth, our focus this year is to build up our recurring monthly giving. We encourage you to give at a level that is comfortable for you each month instead of one bigger gift at the end of the year. This helps our agency forecast cash flow more effectively, cuts down on administrative and event costs, and lets us focus on our programs and making matches – what we do best!
Make a year-long or life-long investment in mentoring by setting up a recurring donation to our agency in any of the amounts listed below. Just click the amount you’d like to donate each month and you’ll be taken to our secure PayPal donation site to complete your recurring donation.  To pay by credit card on the PayPal donation site, simply click on the link in the log in section.

Invest in mentoring and make a difference in YOUR community!

Each day Big Brothers Big Sisters of Nevada County & North Lake Tahoe builds a better future for our local children.

It costs our agency an average of $1,200 annually to create, monitor and support a safe and rewarding mentoring match that makes a BIG difference in a child’s life. We have more children on the list waiting for a Big Brother or Big Sister than we have the capacity to serve. Please give now and take a child off the list!

There are many ways to contribute to our mission and some don’t require money out of your pocket. Please take a look at the options below to see which one is best suited for you.
