The communities of Tahoe Mountain Resorts were created by Mountainside Partners with a commitment to  achieving the highest standards of ecological and social responsibility. These year-round resort communities  employ environmentally conscious practices rarely applied on such a comprehensive basis in real  estate development. The Tahoe Mountain Resorts Foundation (TMRF) was created along with  the TMR Environmental Fund and three community specific foundations as a medium to meet  and exceed this commitment. The community specific foundations are the Gray’s Crossing  Community Foundation, the Old Greenwood Community Foundation and the Northstar  Community Foundation.

The Truckee-North Tahoe area is a vibrant community, one that is continually energized by its most valuable natural resource: its people. We all treasure the lifestyle that the high Sierra  provides, no matter whether it is for a weekend or a lifetime. Tahoe Mountain Resorts  Foundation and its associated foundations are dedicated to sustaining and enhancing this lifestyle from an  educational, cultural, athletic and community-based perspective, enriching the mind, body and soul of the entire community. By supporting and enhancing what private business and public office cannot, the Foundations cultivate the vital spirit that is the Sierra.

We focus our attention on environmental, educational, cultural and social programs in the Truckee-North Tahoe region. Your non-profit should have proven longevity and viability. We also look at the greater good, as in the overall social, economic and environmental benefits to the community.
