Current Efforts

Join us in our efforts to support non-profit Historic Sauder Village and its educational programs and fun activities. Along with our Annual Staff Campaign the following campaigns are currently in progress;

  • Experience Fund: Our perennial campaign for the general funding that supports all of Historic Sauder Village. See details below.
  • Help Pave the Way Through the 1920s:  Be part of the exciting expansion underway to replicate a 1920s Main Street Community. Help contribute the finishing touch to authentically pave the new streetscape.
  • Giving Tuesday: Non-profit Sauder Village has joined #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide.
  • Farm Friends: With your support, our Farm Friends will provide fun, educational experiences not typically available to most people. Help keep the farm with its variety of farm animals a thriving part of the Sauder Village Experience.
  • Golf Outing: Participate or become a sponsor of the annual Tee it Up for Education Golf Tournament. The Golf Outing proceeds benefits the Junior Historian program at Sauder Village.
