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.

Why I Give

I want my children and my grandchildren to see this and to be a part of it, and protect it as I do through my Conservancy donations.
