Some of the organizations include:

ARC - Adventure Risk & Challenge provides critical tools for life growth to at risk high school students through developmental activities and experiences with a goal toward academic achievement, personal development and quality of life.

Tahoe Mountain Resorts Foundation has been a major contributor since ARC's inception and continues to support ARC's goal to foster intellectual, social and ethical development by preparing students to become engaged and constructive members of a diverse, dynamic and global society

TRUCKEE HIGH SCHOOL SCHOLARSHIPS - Tahoe Mountain Resorts Foundation is committed to supporting the scholastic efforts of graduating high school seniors from Truckee High School.

Each year TMR Foundation awards six scholarships totaling $37,000. From the large number of students who apply, the TMRF scholarship committee reviews all applicants in depth and selects 12 finalists for interviews with the committee. Making the final selections is difficult as all of the applicants are usually exceptional.

The criteria used to select the candidates include financial need, academic performance, extra-curricular activities and an essay provided by the student. The final decision on who are awarded the scholarships is the result of individual interviews with the selection committee.

TAHOE WOMEN'S SERVICES (TWS) - TMR Foundation supports the goals of the Tahoe Women's services to reduce the incidence and trauma of domestic violence, sexual assault and child abuse in the North Lake Tahoe and Truckee communities.

While the need for TWS services has increased, their funding has been drastically reduced due to the economy and reduction in state aid. TMRF is trying to help fill the funding void.

BOYS & GIRLS CLUB - Club programs and services promote and enhance the development of boys and girls by instilling a sense of competence, usefulness, belonging and influence.

The Boys & Girls Club is a safe place to learn and grow -- all while having fun. It is truly - The Positive Place For Kids. TMRF believes this is one of the best organizations to build our future leaders and has committed its support to continue the work of the Club.
