So many possibilities exist for our state parks to change the lives of people across California. With your park support, we can reimagine California State Parks as hubs for education, professional development, and community building.
Parks California facilitates many park fundraising endeavors to help build the programs that will bring these ideas to life. Donations from generous stewards like you provide a large part of the park support we rely on to implement this inspiring vision for the future of our State Parks.
When you contribute to our park fundraising efforts, you are actively helping to create programs that encourage youth and adults throughout California to forge authentic, long-term connections to nature. As a result, more people in California will have the chance to realize how State Parks can play a key role in their own personal and professional journey over the course of their lives.
Currently, Parks California is fundraising for these vital State Park programs:
- Capital Investments—Helps parks rebuild aging infrastructure like roads, trails, and buildings as well as preserve and maintain cultural monuments inside our State Parks.
- Youth Programs—Builds State Park youth programming like the Junior Rangers and the Lifeguard Program to educate children and teens about the value of State Parks. This engages them now to become passionate park supporters throughout their lives. It’s also an excellent way we can help them build job training skills.
Our park fundraising efforts generate the essential revenue we need so that all State Parks can deliver world-class, holistic experiences to our millions of diverse visitors every year.
Join us in helping California State Parks continue to inspire, engage and connect all of us.
