Carson City, Nevada– March 16, 2010 –The Franktown Meadows Hunter Derby and the Parasol Tahoe Community Foundation (Parasol) will work in collaboration so as to benefit the Northern Nevada and California area. The standalone derby is set to take place at the Franktown Meadows Equestrian Facility in Carson City, NV on September 19, 2010, and will be a member event of the United States Hunter Jumper Association (USHJA) International Hunter Derby Series.
Parasol has partnered with the Franktown Meadows Hunter Derby not only to promote philanthropy in the Northern Nevada and California areas, but also to promote the equestrian sport.
The Foundation is housed in the $6.6 million Donald W. Reynolds Community Non-Profit Center of Incline Village, NV. This beautifully planned purpose-built building provides a place for non-profit organizations to come together for the common good. Sixty-six non-profit and charitable organizations work together under the Parasol roof sharing meeting space, services, resources and ideas, in addition to the eight charitable organizations housed in the Parasol building. This building embodies the concept of collaborating to save money - the Parasol building has saved non-profits over $4.1 million.
Claudia Andersen, President of the Parasol Tahoe Community Foundation explained, “Parasol’s mission is to serve the community by promoting philanthropy and non-profit collaboration. This mission has evolved over the 14 years that the foundation has existed. Founded by community members, this foundation believes that people get stronger resources by working together.”
The experts at Parasol assist those who want to partake in philanthropic ventures as they are able to aid thousands of people each year utilizing every type of charitable giving, from grants, to scholarship funds, to investments.
During the Franktown Meadows Hunter Derby, Parasol will be in the forefront of everyone’s minds as they enjoy an event that will benefit both community and sport simultaneously.
