Fourteen years ago, the Martis Camp Foundation (MCF) started with the hope of sending one high school student to college. Today, we are the largest provider of college scholarships in the Truckee/North Tahoe region. In our first few years, the MCF was able to donate a handful of grants to local nonprofits. Today, we are one of the largest grantors to nonprofits in Truckee and support more than 50 organizations with over $500,000 in grants a year. In 2018, we expanded to include scholarships to our Ambassadors and their dependents to help our amazing Martis Camp employees achieve their educational dreams. And yet again, we’ve broadened our focus to support communities tragically affected by wildfire. We are very proud of the difference we are making in our local community and we invite you to join us.

We have done this impactful work with about 30% of Martis Camp Members donating. Please help us increase Martis Camper participation by considering a donation to the MCF. In 2022, our average donation per Martis Camp family is about $6,500 and our largest donation is $120,000. Any donation is greatly appreciated. As you are making your year-end charitable donations, we hope you favorably consider the MCF in your giving plans. We invite you to join us in demonstrating the heart of Martis Campers in helping the Truckee/North Tahoe region thrive.
