Queen of Hearts Impact
TTCF’s Queen of Hearts Women’s Fund is made up of women who have donated $1,000 to the Queen of Heart’s endowment. At the end of every year, they contribute to our local community through two campaigns. The first is an annual gift drive for local older adults in partnership with Sierra Senior Services and other community members. Holiday cheer arrived for 215 of our most vulnerable neighbors, homebound Meals on Wheels recipients, and senior apartment residents. Seniors received gift cards to buy themselves a gift either in-person or from the comfort of their homes.
In December, donors voted from around the world to award grants to eight local nonprofits. The recipients of $10,000 grants were Truckee Roundhouse, Gateway Mountain Center, Sierra Watershed Education Partnerships (SWEP), and Tahoe Ability Program. The recipients of the $5,000 grant were Fox Cultural Hall (formerly Arts for the Schools), Positively Rolling, Tahoe Cross Country Ski Education Association, and Elevation Truckee. This grant cycle is an opportunity for donors to learn about the missions and goals of local nonprofits, and to discover new ways to give back.
Buoyed by the generous support of the Queen of Hearts Women’s Fund, young people, entrepreneurs, retired persons, and hobbyists have access to state-of-the-art tools and training to explore their inventive or artistic side, sometimes for the very first time. It is an honor to partner with the Queen of Hearts to serve as a catalyst for a more connected, inspired, and creative world.
