The Zion National Park Foundation is Zion National Park’s official fundraising partner. The Zion National Park Foundation works closely with the park superintendent to identify Zion’s highest priorities and long-term funding challenges. The Foundation provides funding in four strategy areas: Youth Initiative, Visitor Experience, Preservation and Sustainability, ensuring Zion’s sanctuary for everyone forever.
While the federal government provides appropriations to cover the park’s day to day operations and basic maintenance, the Zion National Park Foundation invests in projects and special initiatives to ensure the park’s margin of excellence in perpetuity.
Your gift to the Zion Foundation is an investment in Zion’s future, helping us to fund projects that engage the next generation of park stewards, repair and improve Zion’s trail network, and protect its natural and cultural resource integrity for future generations.
The Zion National Park Foundation also provides support to Cedar Breaks National Monument and Pipe Spring National Monument through its park store operations and targeted fundraising for special initiatives.
