Giving to Thunderbird Lake Tahoe


Thunderbird Lake Tahoe is funded entirely by charitable gifts from friends like you. We welcome contributions in any amount.

Your memberships and donations keep Thunderbird Lodge and Yacht open to the public today and pay for our educational programs. With compelling benefits, Thunderbird Lake Tahoe memberships start at just $100 per year. Please join or renew your membership or make a donation today.

A permanent $20-million Preservation Fund (endowment) is needed to save Thunderbird Lodge and Yacht for future generations. Launched in 2009 with a $5-million grant from the Donald W. Reynolds Foundation, the Preservation Fund depends on your legacy gifts of cash, IRA distributions, stocks and securities, family foundation grants, donor-advised funds, planned gifts, and bequests.

The Thunderbird Lake Tahoe Castle Club recognizes individuals, families, and foundations making legacy gifts of $100,000 or more to the Preservation Fund.

Your contributions are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.

We thank our members, donors, and volunteers for their support.
