A SHARED SENSE OF PURPOSE
Grand Teton National Park, one of America’s premier national parks, is an extraordinary landscape and a world treasure. The opportunities afforded by the park can increase dramatically with the help of private funding. As the park’s nonprofit fundraising partner, Grand Teton National Park Foundation has the ability to enable high-impact projects and programs that the park cannot achieve on its own.
More than 214 friends groups and other fundraising partners assist America’s national parks by providing a mechanism for overcoming limitations, giving philanthropic dollars for projects and programs that are beyond the reach of traditional funding sources such as federal appropriations and entrance fees.
The partnership between Grand Teton National Park and the Foundation is vibrant, complemented by a host of important programs and more than two decades of successes. Projects conserve the park’s iconic resources and transform the visitor experience, providing memories, learning, and inspiration that stay with visitors long after they leave Grand Teton.
