Support Your Park

How You can Make A Difference

In 1967, Congress established the National Park Foundation (NPF) to provide private citizens an official, tax-deductible way to make gifts to the support national parks. NPF helps individual parks attract philanthropic gifts by encouraging those who feel a deep appreciation for a park to express their support.

Making a donation to the Lincoln Boyhood Memorial Fund at the National Park Foundation means your gift will be used to support the park and its programs. Your gift will make a difference.

 

Lincoln Boyhood NM has a number of volunteer opportunities available in the areas of visitor services, maintenance, and administration. For more information, please contact the park’s Volunteer Coordinator, Paula Alexander, at 812-937-4541 or paula_alexander@nps.gov.
