How We Help
The national parks belong to every American – past, present and future. The National Park Foundation is dedicated to celebrating our diversity – supporting equal and abundant opportunities for all audiences to experience, enjoy and create life-long relationships with these special places. In return, 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.
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.
