Richard and Theresa Crocker Give $1 Million to TCCF
We are so pleased to announce that Richard and Theresa Crocker, longtime Truckee homeowners and the donor advisors of the Crocker Philanthropic Fund, have donated $1 million to TTCF. As second-homeowners for two decades, the Crocker gift is a reflection of their passion and love for this community.
Richard and Theresa shared, “We have long enjoyed the Lake Tahoe area, especially Truckee, which has given us so much joy.” “We felt it was only right to give back. It seems a modest gesture compared to all that this area has provided for us. We hope all those that have received the same pleasures from this community are inspired to give back in any way they can.”
The gift will support some of TTCF’s most critical initiatives: programs that focus on mental health, social services, and disaster preparedness for very low-income residents; scholarships to aid in workforce development; housing solutions; and community programming. In addition, it will help fund TTCF’s new Forest Futures Campaign, a comprehensive approach that can be replicated by other communities to align community climate action with transformational finance for forest health and infrastructure, and diversification of local economies.
Stacy Caldwell, TTCF’s CEO expressed her gratitude. “We are extremely grateful to the Crockers for this generous gift to help TTCF fund its impact agenda,” Caldwell said, “which aims to create a thriving, resilient community where families are stable and happy, housing is affordable, forests are strong and healthy, and the economy is vibrant, diverse and sustainable.”
