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. Occurring this year on November 28,  #GivingTuesday is held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving to kick-off the holiday giving season and inspire people to collaborate in improving their local communities and to give back in impactful ways to the charities and causes they support.

“Sauder Village is pleased to be part of #GivingTuesday movement again this year,” shared Andy Brodbeck, Director of Development. “As a 501c3 non-profit organization that depends on gifts of time, talent and finances, Sauder Village has many opportunities for people to participate in #GivingTuesday Movement. From visiting, shopping or dining to becoming a member, volunteering or making a donation to the “Experience Fund”, there are many ways to get involved.”

First, guests can go online to learn more about the Experience Fund and the unique ways Sauder Village strives to honor the past and inspire the future. Sauder Village provides countless opportunities for guests of all ages to slow down, spend quality time together and enjoy fun with a purpose. The Sauder Village experience offers children who have never known a world without computer screens, with real-world interactions and activities that develop knowledge and appreciation for our rich heritage. On this page you can read short stories, see fun video clips and photos of the educational and engaging experiences made possible by donations to the Experience Fund. Next, guests can round up a purchase or make a donation while visiting the Barn Restaurant, Doughbox Bakery and Retail Shops on November 28. People can also stop by the Welcome Center and sign-up to be a volunteer – a great way to share your time and talents at Sauder Village.

#GivingTuesday 

92Y −  a cultural center in New York City that, since 1874, has been bringing people together around its core values of community service and giving back − conceptualized #GivingTuesday as a new way of linking individuals and causes to strengthen communities and encourage giving. In 2016, the fifth year of the movement, #GivingTuesday, millions of people in 98 countries came together to give back and support the causes they believe in. Over $177 million was raised online to benefit a tremendously broad range of organizations, and much more was given in volunteer hours, donations of food and clothing, and acts of kindness.

Do you enjoy coming to see the animals each season?

Who is your favorite Farm Friend?For most of us, Sauder Village is the one place where you can see a variety of farm animals up close in their traditional setting. It is always fun to experience the amazing size of the draft horses or the adorable new baby lambs and to learn something new about each of these important farm animals.

Join us this season for more educational encounters with your Farm Friends than ever before. What better way to appreciate where our milk comes from than to watch a jersey cow being milked, or try your hand at milking a goat. Learn how horses are bred and trained to work on the farm. See chickens in various stages of growth and understand how eggs are produced and poultry is raised. There is so much to discover on the farm at Sauder Village!

Did You Know That . . .

It takes 2, 550 bales of hay each year to feed the horses, cows, sheep and goats (that's 191,250 pounds!)

Over 21,510 pounds of grain are needed every year for the horses, cows and poultry.

The animals consume 287 gallons of water every day.

Daily chores to care for the animals can take up to 4 hours each day (nearly 1,460 hours every year).

Veterinarians provide farm wellness checks 2 - 3 times every year for all the animals.
