Welcome to Saving Castles

The castles of Europe are unlike any other. They range from fancy, to small and simple; but they all have one thing in common: every castle has a story behind it that makes it so special!

Some people dream since they were kids about owning their own personal castle or chateau with cobblestone streets leading up to the gates. For others, inheriting property is just an expectation-a family tradition passed down through generations for centuries. And then there’s those who contribute to projects for these majestic structures because of the beauty or history within them, no matter how old or new…all kinds come together under the banner of “Saving Castles.”

Really excited to work with this team on our Manor restoration. We have received lots of expert guidance and loads of valuable assistance so far.

Saving Castles crowdfunds Castle and Chateau restoration projects that everyone can be part of.

Have you ever wanted to contribute to something that could make a difference? This is your chance! By joining our Saving Castles global community, you can get hands-on an actual ongoing project as a volunteer. Or be a donor and adopt an endangered castle.

Our projects are reviewed by experts then chosen because they deserve and need more public attention. If you want to get involved there are lots of different ways to join in!

Project Guardians and Defenders

Guardians are key supporters that often have the opportunity to become intimately involved with restoring their chosen castle. This is a hugely important role, which enables these monuments of history to stay standing for future generations and visitors alike! Guardians play an integral part in saving Castles from destruction or deterioration by funding necessary repairs that can’t be done on our own as volunteers. We have several contribution levels and all include some wonderful gifts from our online shop in appreciation. You can check out the details of each level at Contribution Levels.

Saving Castles Guardian Matching Fund

We’re saving castles one project at a time, and you can help us do our job!

This is our general fund and quite popular if you want your contribution to be spread out among several urgent projects.

As an ardent supporter of Saving Castle’s mission to save historic buildings around the world from demolition or decay, we’ll match 50% of your contribution up $1,000 USD – that means for every dollar you give today in support of this matching campaign (ending December 30, 2022), 50 cents will be added to the total contribution. You won’t regret getting involved with such an amazing cause- after all who doesn’t want more architectural history preserved?
