The Grand Canyon Association
Has Celebrated More Than 75 Years

As A Nonprofit Park Partner (Since 1932)


Serving as Grand Canyon National Park’s official nonprofit partner, Grand Canyon Association is a private nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization chartered in 1932 for the sole purpose of supporting the National Park Service at Grand Canyon.

Grand Canyon Association helps raise funds for specific park projects and initiatives that enhance the visitor experience and preserve the park for generations to come.
Here are some ways that you can support your park.

Grand Canyon Association runs many educational programs including Grand Canyon Field Institute. They offer classes, guided hiking trips, and educational tours about the geology and cultural/natural history of this magnificent place from those who know it best—geologists, historians, ecologists, archaeologists, and other experts.

Grand Canyon Association sponsors regular events, from book-signings and lectures about the Grand Canyon region, to exhibits at Kolb Studio. Plus, each September GCA hosts the Grand Canyon Celebration of Art event bringing some of the nation’s best landscape painters to the park.
