The Sustainable Truckee Gift Card is a community-based, digital gift card that can be used at participating merchants. The program encourages visitors and residents to shop local, keeping more dollars in our community. There is no cost to participate for business owners.

For every gift card sold, Visit Truckee-Tahoe will match 25% of card value for Sustainable Truckee Sponsorships (up to $25,000) such as meadow restoration (carbon sequestration), trail work, graffiti cleanup, wildfire prevention messaging and more in 2022.
