With one click you can help the National Park Foundation raise up to $600,000 from the Lowe’s Charitable and Educational Foundation!

From January 9th through January 21st, the National Park Foundation will be one of four charities competing for a percentage of a $1million grant. As part of this unique challenge grant, each of the competing charities is guaranteed $100,000, but has the opportunity to raise up to $600,000! Public support through an online voting campaign will determine how the remaining $600,000 will be allotted to the participating charities.

Please cast your vote for the parks daily at or and help us spread the word about this outstanding fundraising opportunity for our national parks.

Funds raised for the Foundation through this campaign will support national park restoration and preservation efforts, connect underserved communities to their parks, and give disadvantaged children the opportunity to experience their national parks for the first time.  Every vote is critical – please help us get the word out.
