You Can Help Yosemite

You make a difference in the park each and every day. As a donor to the Yosemite Conservancy, you help preserve the park for future generations.

Each year, the Conservancy provides grants to Yosemite National Park based on the park’s highest-priority needs. Your donations — and your participation in our outdoor programs, art workshops, theater performances and volunteering opportunities — provide essential funding for trail and habitat restoration, scientific research, visitor services, wildlife management and more.

With your support we have completed more than 450 projects and provided more than $81 million in grants to the park. Click below to browse the  accomplishments made possible by your support. 

Why I Give

When I started my own family I needed to bring them to Yosemite, I wanted us to experience the same traditions together; it’s a big thing in our family now, to meet in the park. I’ve introduced my grandchildren to the Junior Ranger Program and to fishing and rafting.
