Connect All People to Parks

How We Help

The National Park Foundation is dedicated to celebrating our nation’s rich diversity – supporting equal and abundant opportunities for all audiences to experience, enjoy, and create life-long relationships with our magnificent national parks. We also dedicate ourselves to bringing America’s national parks to the people – empowering our parks and their programs as engines for sustainability, volunteerism and stability in communities big and small. In short, we are committed to connecting all Americans with the rich natural, historical, and cultural heritage preserved by National Park System.  After all, the national parks belong to every American – past, present, and future.

The National Park Foundation is:

  • Creating the American Latino Heritage Fund to preserve and protect the rich legacy and history of American Latino culture.
  • Restoring 250 miles of waterways and trails, connecting parks to communities and promoting healthy lives.
  • Embracing diversity with the African American Experience Fund, which supports over 30 national park sites including the Ebenezer Baptist Church and Little Rock Central High School.
