2024 Marks Our 30th Anniversary!
Tahoe Magic is a 501c3 nonprofit organization formed in 1994 to help low-income families in the South Lake Tahoe area with essential basic needs.
Thanks to the generosity of its donors, Tahoe Magic disburses a substantial amount of financial support to our local community members in response to requests referred through referral agency partners. More than $700,000 has been donated to our South Lake Tahoe locals since the onset of COVID-19.
Tahoe Magic is the only nonprofit in South Lake Tahoe that is designed to provide financial assistance to families in crisis immediately through this referral process. We are only able to do this through a legacy gift, grants and donations.
Our Timeline shares our story from the early days of helping families who struggled at holiday times to our crisis response to the ever-evolving year-round basic security needs of families trying to live at Tahoe.
The Board of Tahoe Magic understands that families can often experience crisis at any time needing help to keep the heat on, electricity or a roof over their head. With the help of our donors, Tahoe Magic responds with one-time financial support for these basic essential needs.
