Dear Fellow Martis Camp Members,
Happy Holidays! Reflecting on the year, we feel fortunate to be a part of the Martis Camp community. While Martis Camp does so much to enrich the lives of our members, we also strive to enhance the greater Truckee community. As you may be aware, the Martis Camp Community Foundation (MCCF) is a 501c3 that was created to support our sur-rounding community. MCCF provides grants to local non-profits, primarily in the areas of education, youth develop-ment, scholarships and basic family needs.
Since the beginning of the MCCF a few years ago, most of the financial support has come from the developers and various annual club events. The MCCF Board has now transitioned from the developers to those of us who live in Martis Camp, and we envision the MCCF becoming part of the fabric of our community.
For the first time, we are asking for financial contributions and hoping that you will consider an annual philanthropic gift to the MCCF. Your gift to the MCCF is 100% tax deductible and will be used to meet the most pressing needs of the greater Truckee community as a whole. This year will kick off an annual gift-giving program that will last for generations and have significant impact on the greater Truckee area.
Each of us on the MCCF Board has committed to a family gift of at least $1,000 and we hope you will consider joining us. Please know that any gift, large or small, is important and greatly appreciated. Our goal is 100% member partici-pation. No matter what you choose to give, our campaign this holiday season will mark the beginning of something impactful in the lives of our community.
Please support the Martis Camp Community Foundation by replying to this email with the amount your family wishes to contribute. You will find your contribution on your next billing statement for your tax records, or if you prefer, you can send a check to Carla Yeager at:
Martis Camp Club
7951 Fleur Du Lac Drive
Truckee, CA 96161
Thank you for your thoughtful consideration of this request. Please feel free to contact any of us if you have questions or need further information. We wish you all a very happy and healthy holiday season. May you and your families find joy and togetherness in the New Year.
On behalf of the Martis Camp Community Foundation and the greater Truckee area, we thank you.
The MCCF Board

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Truckee/North Tahoe Area Student Athletes Earn Martis Camp Community Foundation Scholarship Funds
TRUCKEE, Calif. (Monday, May 19, 2014) – Truckee and North Tahoe area student athletes Noah Rodarte, Sawyer Coll, Blaise Bibolet, Mia Bibolet, Mikey Lampe and Samantha Lampe have been recognized for their academic achievement, community service, and dedication to the Northstar Ski and Snowboard Teams.
In partnership with the Martis Camp Community Foundation, the Northstar Team Foundation proudly announced the six recipients of the 2014 Martis Camp Scholarship, valued at $5,000, at the honors ceremony held Saturday, May 17 at the Family Barn in Martis Camp. The Martis Camp Scholarship was created in 2013 to support local student athletes who dedicate service in their community.
“While we are extremely proud of all our recipients, we called special attention to our local Truckee student athletes, Noah Rodarte and Sawyer Coll, who both compete with the Northstar Freeride Teams,” said Jordan Bender, a director and board member with the Northstar Team Foundation. “Noah and Sawyer are so impressive, particularly for elementary school students. Their devotion to community service in Truckee, including participation in Truckee Day and collection for local food donation reflect their commitment to their community. Noah additionally helps with the Salvation Army, Little Free Libraries and Young Life Adventures, while Sawyer spends extra time volunteering with Sierra Senior Services and his school’s PTO,” he added.
Additional scholarship fund recipients included Blaise Bibolet, Mia Bibolet, Mikey Lampe and Samantha Lampe—all of whom attend junior high and high school in the area. In addition to academic dedication, all show remarkable commitment for their other team sports, as well as community churches and non-profit volunteerism at Boys and Girls Club of North Lake Tahoe and Operation Christmas Child. “This year’s recipients possess exceptional ability and enthusiasm for balancing their academics, community involvement, and sports participation,” Bender said. “We are so proud of them.”
