The National Parks of Lake Superior Foundation (NPLSF) is a newly organized, privately supported effort to fund special projects in the five U.S. national parks on Lake Superior, over and above appropriated funds. These projects include preservation of historic structures and lighthouses, improved visitor services and facilities, enhanced environmental education programs and more.
This effort is meant to complement efforts by the Friends organizations of individual parks. Any private donations received will be split evenly between the parks, unless the donation has a specifically targeted project or park. The NPLSF is actively seeking partners to assist in developing this special new funding organization and invite individual and major donors.
