Donate to a Sponsored Project


The Fund for People in Parks provides private funding and resources to complete inspirational projects that directly benefit visitors in western National Parks.

The Fund continues the long-standing tradition of private philanthropy for National Parks and concern for the visitor that was at the heart of the founding and growth of the National Park system. By providing private funds and other resources for projects that cannot be accomplished through funding alone, the Fund develops public/private partnerships that enhance the visitor experience in parks.

To date, the Fund has completed or is engaged in 55 projects in 19 western National Parks.
The Fund for People in Parks is an official philanthropic partner of the National Park Service.
