Endowed Gifts

Your Gift Can Last Forever

An endowment gift to the National Park Foundation today provides a brighter picture for our future. When you make a donation to an endowment, you give a gift with both immediate and long-term benefits.

Endowment donations are invested. A portion of the annual income from the investment is used to address immediate needs at NPF. The remaining funds are reinvested to ensure indefinite support.

An Example of How It Works

Couple Smiling Longtime the National Park Foundation supporters Charlie and Susan want to make sure NPF continues to receive support after they are gone.

Charlie and Susan make a $25,000 donation to NPF, which we invest, and each year, a portion of the income from the invested money will be used to support our mission in honor of Charlie’s parents. Plus, Charlie and Susan qualify for a federal income tax charitable deduction on their taxes.
