Would you like to support our park or a particular program, event, or project? Many people opt to make a difference by providing gifts to the parks. You can make direct cash or check gifts at the donation boxes located in the park, or you can mail your gift to the National Park Service. You can give a gift to a specific park: Fort Raleigh National Historic Site, Wright Brothers National Memorial, or Cape Hatteras National Seashore—or simply to the Outer Banks Group, which oversees all three.
If desired, when making a donation, you may specify a use such as
- education programming,
- the lighthouse(s),
- marine mammal strandings, or
- Ocracoke pony herd
and the entire gift will be used solely for that purpose.
Your gift will be deposited in a government account, which are non-interest bearing and cannot generate interest between the time it is deposited and the time it is spent. No administrative costs will be deducted from your gift.
Please include a short letter specifying the nature of your gift and, the purpose or project you intend the funds to benefit (or you may leave it up to our discretion). If you are making a donation in someone's honor, please include this information as well.
