ZION NATIONAL PARK FOUNDATION
Zion National Park Foundation is the official fundraising partner of Zion National Park. The Foundation operates as a division of Zion Natural History Association (ZNHA), a 501(c) (3) not-for-profit corporation in the State of Utah. Established in 1929, ZNHA is governed by an elected board of directors who serve as volunteers and work in direct consultation with the Superintendent of Zion National Park. ZNHA publishes books, maps, guides and other interpretive products, and operates the retail sales in park visitor centers. The retail operations of ZNHA fund the overhead of the Foundation, making it possible for more than 90 percent of Foundation-generated funds to go directly to important projects in Zion National Park.
Since the Foundation was established in 2007, we have raised money to rehabilitate a historic building in Zion National Park, preserve historic and contemporary art of Zion, support programs which sustain the desert bighorn, the California condor, the peregrine falcon, as well as archeological and historical sites, and enhance the Junior Ranger Program. Currently, our fundraising focus is Zion’s Youth Education Initiative to expand the park’s efforts to engage youth and promote positive experiences in the park.
Your support will touch the lives of thousands of children, which, in turn, will help assure the future of the park you love so dearly. Contributions to the Zion National Park Foundation are tax-deductible.
