Sponsor a Building

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 and take an incredible toll on the annual operating budget.  Without the dedicated employees, facilities, and volunteers at Bonanzaville, these buildings would simply no longer exist.

The Sponsor-a-Building program ensures that our historic buildings will have the necessary funding to last for generations. One Hundred percent of the funds received on the adopted building will be used for building repairs, scheduled maintenance or improvements.(with priority being placed on the adopted building).

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.

If interested in adopting a building please contact Beth Jansen at 701-282-2822 or
