Save-the-Castle™ Campaign

Only YOU Can Save-the-Castle

Save-the-Castle™ is a new concept in giving where thousands of contributors making small to moderate-sized gifts make a huge impact on saving our Lake Tahoe treasures. And each contributor earns a chance to preview Thunderbird programs and experiences including curator-led Secrets-of-the-Castle tours, dining at Thunderbird Lodge, THUNDERBIRD yacht cruises, and more.

Each January, for each $25,000 raised by the Save-the Castle™ program, Thunderbird’s Governing Board of Directors will randomly choose one Save-the-Castle contributor to bring limited guests to visit Thunderbird Lodge and preview Thunderbird’s educational programs, historic vehicles and vessels, and experiential activities.

Increase your chances of being invited to Thunderbird Lodge by making additional gifts in any amount as often as you can. Ask your friends to do the same! The more families who participate—and the more each family donates—the greater your chance to preview once-in-a-lifetime experiences at Lake Tahoe’s Castle-in-the-Sky.

Save-the-Castle™ gifts ensure Thunderbird Lodge remains open to the public. Plus, your charitable contributions are safeguarding a vast collection of historic art and artifacts for future generations, including the construction of Lake Tahoe’s first art and history museum at Incline Village, Nevada.
