Help Families Flourish

Though Bonkerz was opened in 2013 as a for-profit Playcenter, in 2018 the Palouse Alliance for Children and Families Inc (PACFAM, an Idaho 501(c)(3) corporation) purchased the Playcenter and reorganized its operation into a non-profit, for the benefit of the children and families on the Palouse. Though we did introduce a modest price increase to user fees in January, the revenue from Playcenter admissions and parties only covers about 85% of the cost of operation. We make up the rest through volunteer help and financial gifts from donors. If you are interested, our 2019 non-profit corporate tax return (Form 990-EZ) is a matter of public record and available for your examination.

We know that many families on the Palouse are struggling financially, but if you are in a position to support the mission of PACFAM to strengthen families through healthy play, education and support, you have several options.

  • Donate to PACFAM Directly

    PACFAM Inc is a registered nonprofit corporation in the State of Idaho. We have also received exempt status from the IRS as a 501(c)(3) organization and are qualified to receive tax deductible contributions. You may donate directly to PACFAM.

  • Donate to Intersect Community Church

    Intersect Community Church has partnered with PACFAM Inc from it's inception and continues to generously support the mission of PACFAM to strengthen families on the Palouse through healthy play, education and support through volunteers and financial gifts. You may donate to Intersect Community Church and designate the gift for PACFAM Inc.
