Like many, the Truckee Roundhouse has been hit hard by the COVID-19 shutdown. Its annual fundraiser, the Makers Fair, typically held in June, has been cancelled. This in an amazing community space that needs the support of the community.
The Truckee Roundhouse is a 501(c)3 California non-profit corporation whose mission is to run a ‘makerspace’ in Truckee, California for the benefit of our entire community. The Truckee Roundhouse supports the teaching, learning, and practicing of a wide variety of crafts, skills, technologies and arts. Their vision is to become a sustainable, self-funded, permanent fixture in the Truckee/Tahoe community offering consistent benefit and fostering economic growth. Their values include entrepreneurship, inclusivity, community collaboration and “do-ing”.

Roy Tuscany sustained a spinal cord injury while skiing, and as a result, founded the non-profit High Fives Foundation. Non-profits like High Fives rely on donations, mainly through fundraising events. With the limitations due to COVID-19, it’s important to keep non-profits such as Roy's in mind as their revenue streams are critical in helping them provide their services to the community. "High Fives focuses on preventing life-changing injuries and provides resources and hope if they happen.”
