Your Donations Help
In addition to federal funding for the cost of daily operations and special projects, Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area also receives important financial support in the form of donations. This comes directly from private donors as well as from our partnering non-profit organizations. Monetary donations are graciously accepted and directly benefit the park. Funds will be used for visitor services and safety, education programs, and projects that protect natural and cultural resources.
What Donations Support
Some of the most recognizable things the Santa Monica Mountains Fund supports are the OUTDOORS Calendar of Events, mountain lion and bobcat research, restoration work of park lands, and our very own native plant fair. Without their assistance, these programs in the Santa Monica Mountains might well cease to exist. The Fund even allows donors to direct their contributions to specific purposes with the guarantee that 100 percent of all such donations are exclusively used for those activities.
