The National Park Foundation, chartered by Congress, strengthens the enduring connection between the American people and their National Parks by raising private funds, making strategic grants, creating innovative partnerships and increasing public awareness. Recognizing that private funding is essential to help preserve and enhance the legacy of our National Parks, Congress in 1967 chartered the National Park Foundation as a private fundraising organization. The National Park Foundation's success is measured entirely by the benefit we bring to our nation's National Parks.


The National Park Foundation works collaboratively with the National Park Service and key partners to support a multi-dimensional web of opportunities for people from all backgrounds, ages and regions to connect with their National Parks through personally meaningful experiences. While they intertwine and overlap, each of our grant programs represents a significant strand in the web. The strands are Volunteerism, Visitor Experience, Education and Outreach programs working interactively to enrich lives and enhance learning, nurturing people's love for parks and ultimately helping preserve America's National Parks for future generations.
