The nonprofit Friends of Dangberg Home Ranch has received a $25,000 donation to the endowment fund that supports historic restoration and preservation at Dangberg Home Ranch Historic Park. The confidential donor also challenged others in the community to help the fund continue to grow by collectively contributing another $25,000.

The Dangberg Home Ranch Endowment Fund has grown from an initial donation of $10,000, made in 2016, to just over $228,000. The fund is owned and managed by Community Foundation of Northern Nevada, a 501(c)(3) non-profit, tax ID 88-0370179.

“We’re always so glad to see such generosity,” said Mark Jensen, executive director of Friends of Dangberg. “The goal is to increase the endowment fund’s balance to $1.5 million as soon as possible, and this donation is a big step. We know the fund will keep growing with the community’s help.

All donations are invested and the return solely benefits Friends of Dangberg Home Ranch. Donations can be made in several ways:
