Company Description

In 1872, American did something unprecedented:  it set aside more than one million acres of wilderness for the benefit and enjoyment of the people.  For more than 100 years, citizen involvement and private philanthropy have helped to improve, preserve, and protect American’s national parks.   Since it was established by Congress in 1967, NPF has sustained this legacy of private philanthropy to ensure American’s national parks thrive for future generations.

As the official non-profit partner of the National Park Service, the National Park Foundation’s mission is to protect and enhance our national parks while deepening people’s connection to, and love for, them.  NPF works in collaboration with the National Park Service, the park partner community, as well as generous philanthropists, dedicated corporate partners, and committed supporters in Congress to tackle the urgent and critical issues facing national parks today.  At the National Park Foundation, we believe it will take all of us, working together, to ensure national parks endure for generations to come.  Learn more about us at
