The Martis Fund and Tahoe Truckee Community Foundation: A Decade 0f Collaborative Action

For a decade, The Martis Fund (TMF) and TTCF have collaborated on projects and initiatives in workforce housing, environmental conservation and protection, and community needs. This collective and aligned action has significantly enhanced our mutual efforts. During this time, TMF has matched TTCF’s Nature Fund grants by close to a million dollars, lent Board Member expertise to our Mountain Housing Council, and joined us to make impact investments for both Community House in Kings Beach and 82 workforce housing units in Truckee. Through a shared vision of protecting and serving our region’s people and places, TMF and TTCF have moved the needle farther together. Celebrate our decade of collaboration in our recently published article.

TTCF deserves immense credit for bringing this collective impact model to our community, pulling partners together to leverage funds and elevate projects. And that aligns with the Martis Fund’s grantmaking strategies. In my experience The Martis Fund values collaboration and appreciates when projects have multiple funding partners invested in their projects.

Funders & Local Leaders Rally to Support Northstar Community Services District Wood Energy Facility

To protect our communities from wildfire, we need to intentionally remove excess trees, shrubs, and underbrush. The next step is determining where that woody biomass goes after removal. One local solution is garnering widespread support: The Northstar Community Service Districts (NCSD) Wood Energy Facility. This facility stands to provide a roadmap for other biomass facilities, and local corporate and community funders have rallied to drive public support and philanthropy behind it and its $8 million price tag.

TTCF is proud to help align local collective philanthropy alongside the Martis Camp Foundation, Martis Fund, and Tahoe Mountain Resorts Foundation. Read more about the collective efforts supporting this landmark project.
