Monetary donations directly benefit the park and are greatly appreciated. These funds are used for interpretation, visitor services, and safety, as well as resource management programs. If desired, those making a donation may specify a use for their money. For example, if you or someone you know was involved in a search and rescue, donations may be made to directly support the park's emergency services program. No administrative cost is deducted from a gift made directly to the National Park Service. Your check will be deposited in a government account and the full amount will be spent as you designate. Donations may be made by check or money order made payable to the "National Park Service" and mailed to:
Carlsbad Caverns National Park
3225 National Parks Highway
Carlsbad, NM 88220
If you are making a donation in someone's honor, please include the name and address of that person and they will receive acknowledgement.
Visitors to the park may give monetary donations in cash or check through our donation box. Unlike entrance fees, 100% of donated funds stay in this park. A donation box is located inside the visitor center.
