Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy
The Nonprofit Partner for the Golden Gate National Parks

The Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy is a nonprofit membership organization created to preserve the Golden Gate National Parks, enhance the experiences of park visitors, and build a community dedicated to conserving the parks for the future.

The Parks Conservancy works in collaboration with the National Park Service and the Presidio Trust to improve park sites, enlist volunteers in restoration projects, provide services and education programs for visitors and local communities, and engage diverse audiences in the national parks at the Golden Gate.

Funding and Aid to the National Parks

The Parks Conservancy’s work is undertaken with generous contributions from individual, corporate, foundation and public agency donors, as well as income earned from operating park bookstores, merchandise and retail, publishing educational materials and providing interpretive tours. Since its inception in 1981, the Parks Conservancy has provided the National Park Service with more than $70 million in aid and is recognized as one of the largest, most effective park partners in the country.
