Continuing the conservation legacy of Grand Teton through partnership and philanthropy

Grand Teton National Park Foundation is a private, nonprofit organization that funds projects that enhance Grand Teton National Park’s cultural, historic, and natural resources and helps others learn about and protect all that is special in the park.

The Foundation initiates improvements, critical research, and outreach that enrich visitors’ experiences to help create a stable future for Grand Teton National Park.

We are celebrating our 25th year of partnership with Grand Teton National Park by looking back on our past successes and forward to our future efforts.

We will continue this essential effort with an emphasis on monitoring the implications of climate change, solving difficulties related to visitation, engaging young people, and conserving important species as we look to the future.
