Help the National Park Foundation raise up to $600,000

Please take a moment to help the National Park Foundation raise up to $600,000 - with just one click!

From January 9th through January 21st, the National Park Foundation will be one of four charities competing for a percentage of a $1 million grant from the Lowe’s Charitable and Educational Foundation. As part of this unique challenge grant, each of the competing charities is guaranteed $100,000, but has the opportunity to raise up to $600,000! Public support through an online voting campaign will determine how the remaining $600,000 will be allotted to the participating charities.

The National Park Foundation is competing against Keep America Beautiful,, and American Forests.

You can cast your vote for the National Park Foundation daily at or on Lowe's Facebook page. The NPF would also appreciate if you could help spread the word about this outstanding fundraising opportunity for our national parks.

Funds raised for the Foundation through this campaign will support national park restoration and preservation efforts, connect underserved communities to their parks, and give disadvantaged children the opportunity to experience their national parks for the first time. Every vote is critical.
