About the Campaign
Our national parks have long relied on a healthy mix of federal appropriations and private philanthropy to keep them beautiful, vital, and accessible. The Centennial Campaign for America’s National Parks presents a bold and timely challenge as we welcome the second century of the National Park Service.
The stakes are high.
Our parks are under threat, suffering from the ravages of time, rapid development, climate change, deferred maintenance, heavy use, and other effects of human and natural impacts. Even more challenging, most kids in today’s age of technology have not yet experienced a national park.
Your generosity is essential. Together, we will renew our commitment to our national parks for the next 100 years, energizing them, rejuvenating them, and defending them. Together, we can protect America’s special places, connect people to parks, and inspire the next generation of park stewards.
The National Park Foundation, the philanthropic arm of the National Park Service, invites your support of this national fundraising campaign as we launch a new era of park philanthropy.
