Community Grants

With funds raised at our SITD Fundraising Events we are able to provide funding support within our local community. Organizations based in the Truckee area can apply for funding to support a specific program. 

Guidelines for Applications (Does my program Qualify?):

  • In submitting a Request for Funds, please keep in mind that SITD  supports programs not individuals.
    • A program is defined as a sustainable plan or system under which action may be taken toward a specific goal.
  • Preference is given to programs which impact the greatest number of individuals over the greatest period of time.
  • Preference is also given to programs which include items (as opposed to consumables) which may be used by many people over the course of many years.
  • Even if a grant has been awarded to your program/organization in the past and/or you are the recipient of ongoing support, a new application must be submitted each year.
