How It Works
Bonanzaville is a 501(c)3 and operates on revenue generated primarily through admissions and charitable donations. Maintaining historic buildings for future generations to enjoy is part of the mission that we at Bonanzaville are dedicated to. The costs to preserve the buildings, and the artifacts they contain, go far beyond just materials. Without the dedicated employees, facilities, and volunteers at Bonanzaville, these buildings would simply no longer exist.
The Adopt-a-Building program ensures that our historic buildings will have the necessary funding to last for generations. Twenty percent of the funds received on the adopted building will be put into a restricted account and used for materials and supply costs of any structure maintenance or improvements. The remaining eighty percent will be used for labor, supplies and equipment for maintenance, landscaping and lawn care, and administrative costs. The adopter will be notified if the restricted funds will be used for anything other than what it is intended for.
We are excited to offer this opportunity to let the community we serve help us by properly funding our mission. Bonanzaville brings visitors to our region, provides education to thousands of children, and preserves irreplaceable artifacts. Without people like you it wouldn’t be possible.
