Forever Project Announces Phase I Support for 2018
The 25 projects span Zion National Park, Cedar Breaks and Pipe Spring National Monuments – providing strategic investment in natural and cultural resource protection, ensuring exemplary visitor experiences, and delivering nexgen education programs on site and digital, featuring Zion and her sister parks as global classrooms.
The tremendous response in contributions to the Forever Project during its inaugural year reflects an approximate $1 million commitment to accomplishing project goals for the year ahead — a 70% increase in support from the previous year.
Generous donations, large and small have contributed to the first-year outcome of the Zion Forever Project. From grassroots efforts from kids donating their “change to make change” at park store registers, to businesses at Zion’s gateway cities that have joined the Proud Partner program by donning the infinity “Z” in their lodges, shops and restaurants, are attributed to the sustainability of Zion’s future.
Leading the charge among large corporate and philanthropic donors are change-makers and visionaries, Scott Anderson, president and CEO of Zions Bank, and Kem Gardner, Chairman of Gardner Company. As founding members of Forever Project Founders Circle, Anderson and Gardner donated time, talent and resources to launch the Forever Project throughout the state. The foundational collaboration and partnership strategies will continue to shape the success of the project for seasons to come.
Thank you all for being a part of the Zion Circle – and for making a difference now and forever.
