Giving Back to Local Community is at the Heart of TMS

Tahoe Mountain Sports Gives Back to the Truckee/Tahoe Region

Over $15,000 Donated to Local Nonprofits in 2019

Tahoe Mountain Sports (TMS) contributed over $15,000 to local nonprofits in 2019. At TMS, we’re all about our community, environment and our customers. We’re a community-driven, family-owned and operated local business based in Truckee, California, a small town filled with great adventures.

TMS is a socially responsible leader in Truckee that recognizes opportunities to engage with their neighbors and takes initiatives to boost their local economy through events/fundraisers, generous donations, and partnerships with charities and 501(c)3 organizations. The owner, Dave Polivy, is also the Vice Mayor for the town of Truckee. Dave is an advocate for shopping locally because dollars get circulated in the community rather than being spent elsewhere. 

“It is very important to us to support our local community and this is one of the many ways we can do just that. I encourage folks to shop locally because it means the money stays here rather than drifting down to Reno or further out of town. We try to balance our giving to a variety of local sources and we only hope that folks recognize those donations and try to think of Tahoe Mountain Sports when stocking up on outdoor gear.”

Dave Polivy, TMS Owner

Community is at the core of Tahoe Mountain Sports. This year, TMS has donated over $15,000 in goods, services, and dollars raised to a multitude of local nonprofits in the Truckee/Tahoe region. TMS recently raised over $1800 for the Sierra Avalanche Center at the first event in their Avalanche Education Series on October 30, 2019. The list of the 2019 year to date giving recipients includes, but is not limited to, the following:

This holiday season, TMS has partnered with Mountain Area Preservation (MAP) to continue the spirit of giving. We are donating $5 to MAP for every Patagonia item purchased now through December 24th. Make Tahoe Mountain Sports your go-to Truckee store for holiday shopping and know that your dollars go right back into the community.

TMS is leading the way for community involvement in the Truckee/Tahoe region through events, fundraisers, and partnerships. Stop by to experience this brick and mortar’s small-town hospitality or come to one of their events to meet other outdoor enthusiasts and support the nonprofits that are hard at work in Truckee.

Come to one of our events and show your support for our community!
