Legacy Projects

Delivering Real and Immediate Impact to our National Parks

Volunteer using a saw
In partnership with local Friends groups, NPF makes immediate impacts in parks through targeted programming.

In partnership with local national park Friends Groups and national park leaders, the National Park Foundation has identified a portfolio of eleven priority projects that deliver real and immediate impact to our national parks. Every dollar raised by NPF will be matched by the local Friends Groups and put towards projects this year, addressing NPF’s key objectives:

  • Protecting special places as we stabilize the world’s largest Puebloan dwelling, Cliff Palace, at Mesa Verde and restore native plant communities in Grand Canyon.
  • Reaching new audiences as we rehabilitate and build new trails from the high mountains of Yosemite to the islands of Boston Harbor.
  • Building transformative education experiences as we support a youth conservation corps in Glacier and construct a new facility for youth education at Mount Rushmore.

The Legacy Projects is an exciting opportunity for you, as an NPF supporter, to leverage your generous gift in support of park priorities that will be matched by local Friends Groups. Please join us by making your gift today.
