In addition to donation boxes located at visitor centers, Big Cypress maintains a general donation account into which contributions and donations are deposited. The donor receives a letter of acknowledgement from the preserve superintendent and other recognition, as appropriate.
Unless the donor specifies how they would like the funds to be spent, general donation account funds are used at the preserve's discretion for interpretive, educational or research projects. Large donations may be earmarked for specific projects determined mutually by the donor and the preserve.
Direct contributions can be sent to:

Checks should be made out to: "National Park Service"
