TRUCKEE CHAMBER INTRODUCES NEW TRUCKEE CORE VALUES EVENT FUND

Fund Created to Support Events that Encourage Local Participation, Align with Truckee’s Core Values

TRUCKEE, Calif. (Nov. 7, 2017) - The Truckee Chamber of Commerce announced today that it has created the Truckee Core Values Fund to help support events that reinforce the town’s core values. The fund will be powered by the Tahoe Truckee Community Foundation (TTCF), with funding provided by the Town of Truckee.

The purpose of this fund is to provide grants for events in Truckee that accomplish two things; high local citizen participation, and strong alignment with at least one primary Truckee core value: Healthy Lifestyle; Family Friendly; Natural Beauty; Community Minded; Arts, Culture and History.

“The Truckee community identified quality of life as their #1 reason for living here, based upon five core values. We gathered this data via four public workshops and two online surveys conducted in 2015 as part of the Truckee Tomorrow, Place Based Marketing Initiative,” said Colleen Dalton, brand communications director for the Truckee Chamber of Commerce.

Unlike past Truckee Chamber event grant funds focused on tourism, these grants are available for year-round events as long as they meet the two most important criteria: local engagement and core value alignment.

The process begins by submitting a letter of interest explaining how/why your non-profit organization would qualify for funding. Letters are being accepted at TTCF until November 30, 2017.

Visit www.truckee.com/corevaluesfund to learn more about the letter of interest submission process, guidelines, and timeline.
