There’s an effort in South Lake Tahoe called Tahoe Magic and while you may first think magic performance at a casino? this is by far not the case. You see 2024 marks this nonprofit’s 30th year of helping hundreds of local families who are in crises, with one-time financial support. Just since 2020, this group has raised nearly $900k with 100% of every dollar going directly to those who need it the most (1,000+ families). Tahoe Magic ensures this giving model with no donation dollars for administrative overhead. Guided by the principles of Respect. Respond. Act., if you go behind the scenes, you’ll find a persistent and focused board of directors who work day after day, with their close-knit referral partners, to deliver support to these struggling local families. All this helping is made possible by the generous and kind support of other residents who may find themselves having an easier time and are able to share. This incredible example of community spirit and loyalty is exactly the magic behind respect, respond and act! There’s no doubt in my mind that it’s leadership like this that truly makes the difference in our community, and in the world! To learn more or join the effort, check out
