About Us

Shenandoah National Park is the nation’s capitol’s national park. Spanning 200,000 acres across the spine of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Shenandoah attracts 1.4 million visitors a year. The park includes lands from eight counties: Albemarle, Greene, Madison, Page, Warren, Rappahannock, Rockingham, and Augusta.

Our Mission

As the official philanthropic partner of Shenandoah National Park, the Trust invests in programs and initiatives which help ensure that Shenandoah remains a crown jewel of the Park Service, an economic driver for the region, and a national treasure for all to enjoy, for generations to come.

Our Park Needs You

National parks are federally funded. However, government funding for parks has deteriorated over the past decade and more, leaving these national treasures in dire circumstances. To address this crisis, most of the large, iconic national parks across the country have entered into public-private partnerships like ours as a means to protect and enhance “America’s best idea.”
