The National Park Service works with partners to extend the benefits of natural and cultural resource conservation and outdoor recreation throughout this country and the world. Friends groups assist parks in supporting needed park programs and projects that have been beyond the reach of limited appropriated dollars.
Chartered by Congress in 1967, the National Park Foundation is the official national charitable organization for America's National Parks. The National Park Foundation stewards a tradition of private support for the parks begun by the American people more than a century ago. Your support for the National Park Foundation ensures that the evolving history and rich heritage of our Nation remains vital and relevant.
