Support Shenandoah

It takes money to protect our national parks and magnificent places across the country. Yet congressional funding for national parks has declined dramatically—by 20%–over the last decade. Sequestration shaved another 5% from national park base operating funds. The Trust raises funds to invest in high-priority initiatives that will produce the greatest benefits for the national park. Our areas of funding include

Landscape and Wildlife Protection
Historic Preservation
Educating and Inspiring the Next Generation
Ensuring Extraordinary Visitor Experiences

Without financial support from the Trust, all of these areas would remain under-funded.

Thank you for your support.
