Mission Statement

Incorporated in 1995, the Grand Canyon National Park Foundation is a 501(c)(3), non-profit organization dedicated to protecting and preserving Grand Canyon's irreplaceable natural, cultural, and historic resources while enhancing the visitor experience. The Foundation's mission is building a legacy of stewardship of Grand Canyon through private philanthropy, volunteer leadership, and public outreach.

The Foundation was created as a first step in expanding the circle of friends taking care of the Grand Canyon. As the official fundraising partner and friends group for Grand Canyon National Park, the Foundation seeks to broaden and diversify the park's funding base through private donations, corporate contributions, and citizen involvement. Although federal funding provides baseline support for the park, the funding is insufficient for programs and projects that bring opportunities and positive change for Grand Canyon and its visitors. The Grand Canyon National Park Foundation, working for one of the world's most popular and beloved parks, plays a leading role in the movement to give our national parks everything they need and deserve.


Donations from Friends of Grand Canyon support many needs in the park. Preserving historic buildings such as Kolb Studio on the edge of the South Rim, protecting endangered California condors and other wildlife species throughout the park, building 73 miles of wheelchair-accessible Greenway trails, and providing support for environmental education programs are a few of the essential activities in the life of this extraordinary national park. The Foundation's goal is to shape these and many other aspects of the park through active citizen stewardship. Become a Friend of Grand Canyon today. With your help, Grand Canyon National Park will become even more extraordinary.
