Giving Back to the Community

Martis Camp Foundation (MCF) was created in 2010 to support the Truckee community. Initially funded by Martis Camp developers and various annual club events, the MCF is now funded and run by the members of Martis Camp. Since 2011, the MCF has raised $2.6 million and granted more than $2.2 million to local nonprofit organizations and students in need. We expect to triple that number in the coming years and are aiming for 100% participation from our members. We are excited to see the MCF become part of the fabric of our community.


The mission of the Martis Camp Foundation is to enhance the quality of life in the Greater Truckee community by making a positive impact in the areas of education, youth development, human services and recreation.
