The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Helping meet the needs in our community by building the capactiy of local non-profit and community leaders and discovering ways to work together in collaboration.
Tahoe CAN is a nonprofit membership organization that helps meet the needs of our community by building capacity of local nonprofits and community leaders and encouraging organizations to achieve their goals through collaboration. To do that, we focus on networking, training, and resources: • NETWORKING: Tahoe CAN members meet monthly on the second Wednesday of each month to learn new topics, exchange ideas, and build collaborations. Our meetings are held at the Donald W. Reynolds Community Nonprofit Center and are open to the public. We encourage nonprofit members, business leaders, and interested members of the community to join us. • TRAINING: Tahoe CAN offers a series of workshops and trainings each year designed to enhance the working knowledge and expertise of nonprofit staff, volunteers, board members and the public. Our workshops are held in collaboration with the Community Collaborative of Truckee Tahoe (CCTT) and are open to everyone. • RESOURCES: The Smallwood Collaboration Resource Center is located at the Donald W. Reynolds Community Nonprofit Center and is open to everyone 25 hours each week. It includes free access to the foundation grants database, Foundation Directory Online, as well as a library of nonprofit books and related information.
