National Park Foundation Celebrates Grant from Kohl’s A Community with Heart Program


WASHINGTON – Last week, Kohl’s announced the donation of a $140,000 grant to the National Park Foundation (NPF), the official nonprofit partner of the National Park Service. This grant will support NPF in its mission to help protect America’s national parks and connect visitors to the unique experiences and resources parks offer. Kohl’s is proud to support NPF’s efforts to provide introductory park experiences to families and young people, particularly those from communities that are underrepresented as visitors to public lands.

“The National Park Foundation is honored to receive this grant from Kohl’s A Community with Heart Program,” said Stefanie Mathew, senior vice president of corporate partnerships at the National Park Foundation. “Thanks to partners like Kohl’s, the National Park Foundation is advancing its mission to preserve and enhance parks for the benefit of all people.”

Kohl’s grant to the National Park Foundation was made through Kohl’s A Community with Heart Program. In the spirit of giving with all of its heart this holiday season, this program will donate $5 million in grants to selected nonprofit organizations across the country, demonstrating the company’s ongoing commitment to family health and wellness.
