The Donor Party

What is the Donor Party?

The Donor Party, established in 2017, is the philanthropic arm of the Alpenglow Sports Winter Speaker Series. This year, the Donor Party will raise more than $375,000 for five local nonprofits that make tangible differences in our community.

Each season, over 75 community-minded individuals make per-show pledges between $500 to $50,000. This is done anonymously and without fanfare for the holistic benefit of the North Lake Tahoe and Truckee communities. Please reach out to us at if you are interested in joining the Donor Party.
