Join Sauder Village for GivingTuesday on November 28


GivingTuesday is a movement that unleashes the power of generosity around the world. We ask that you join us and make a gift to support Sauder Village so we may continue honoring the past and inspiriting the future!

We are confronting, and will continue to confront global crisis’ that stress our institutions, systems and communities. As with many organizations, Sauder Village has faced hardships during the pandemic, among many trials, losing 17,000 students from canceled field trips. GivingTuesday provides us a reminder of humanity at its very finest: neighbor helping neighbor and stranger helping stranger. Even in our darkest moments, we are reminded of the kindness and caring that transcends and transforms our community.

Now, it’s time to look collectively to the future. We have had a remarkable 45 years and we need your support now to help us continue into the next 45 years. We have so much more to accomplish and you can help us do that with a gift on GivingTueday.
