Support Your Park
The National Park Service welcomes and encourages support form the private sector to supplement public funds appropriated by Congress. Donations come to the National Park Service from individuals, organizations, foundations, corporations, and businesses purely as expressions of support, in response to the donor's awareness of needs. Whatever the motivation, private sector funds and in-kind contributions enhance the ability of the National Park Service to carry out its programs and activities. The National Park Service recognizes and appreciates this support. National Park Service Director’s Order # 21 governs donations and fundraising policy, including requests for information about memorial contributions. These are contributions made to Friendship Hill National Historic Site in memory of an individual.
