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!

Challenge Grants

• Awarded to 1 organization that receives the most unique donations of $25 or more

from the most U.S. States (location to be determined by billing address)


12th – 4PM-8PM (NEW TO 2017)***

1 winner, however much is raised!

TTCF will host a Give Back Tahoe Variety Show with a $25 admission donation fee. All of

the money will be collected for an onsite challenge grant. Upon giving their donation,

attendees will receive a ballot ticket to vote for their favorite nonprofit. They will be asked

to hold their vote, and nonprofit organizations will have an opportunity to work the room

and practice their elevator pitches (the spiel about your organization that is no longer

than an elevator ride – approx. 30 seconds). You’ll receive more votes the more

compelling and concisely you can pitch your nonprofit without overwhelming your

audience. You can also sign up to take the stage at certain times throughout the variety

show for 1 minute to woo the crowd. We’ll tally the votes at the end of the evening and

announce the winner!
