Support Your Park

If you are interested in opportunities to help support the Presidio of San Francisco in our efforts to preserve and protect these natural and cultural resources, we recommend the following ways to help contribute to Golden Gate.

Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy

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 Conservancy's work is undertaken with generous contributions from individual, corporate and foundation donors, as well as income earned from operating park bookstores, merchandise and retail, publishing educational materials and providing interpretive tours.

United States Capitol Building

In 1872, there was a proposal in Congress for the Presidio to become a San Francisco city park. The Army reported that 800 acres were required for national defense, provided barracks be relocated. Despite Congressman Cole's attempts, however, the Presidio reservation remained intact.
