For the sixth year, Apple is celebrating our national parks with an Apple Pay donation program, Apple Watch Activity Challenge, and special content collections. From now through August 28, Apple will make a $10 donation to the National Park Foundation (NPF) for each purchase made with Apple Pay on apple.com, in the Apple Store app, or at an Apple Store in the US, up to 100,000 transactions.
Apple's long-standing support of NPF has expanded access to America's national parks through education, recreation, service, and economic pathways.
“Whenever I visit our national parks — as I did recently in Yosemite and Glacier — I feel the sense of awe, tranquility, and quiet reverence only nature can inspire,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO. “We’re proud to partner with the organizations and communities who maintain our parks, educate us about their history, and share them with the world. These treasures are well worth protecting, today and for every generation to come.”
“America’s national parks are a gift we share,” said Will Shafroth, the National Park Foundation’s president and CEO. “Apple’s partnership and generous commitment help to ensure that all people see themselves in national parks and feel welcome in these places that belong to all of us.”
