Our Causes
Fundraising for OUR Community
Truckee Rotary grants help fill the financial gaps many local organizations face.
Big Night Out is our signature event, which raises money to be granted each month to local non-profit organizations (hosted in November). 
Each year this community event, along with the Truckee Rotary Raffle, raises over $30,000 that is granted back to local non-profit organizations.
Some funding highlights:
  • Since 1978, Truckee Rotary has granted over $1.5 million to local non-profit organizations
  • In the past five years, Truckee Rotary has granted more than $125,000 to local youth sports, arts, and educations programs
  • Over the past two decades, Truckee Rotary has granted more than $150,000 to Sierra Senior Services, our area’s local Meals on Wheels provider
