With 130,000 members, California State Parks Foundation (CSPF) is the only statewide independent nonprofit organization dedicated to protecting, enhancing and advocating for California’s magnificent state parks. Since 1969, CSPF has raised more than $223 million to benefit state parks. CSPF is committed to improving the quality of life for all Californians by expanding access to the natural beauty, rich culture and history, and recreational and educational opportunities offered by California’s 279 state parks—the greatest state parks system in the United States.
"We not only must live with our day-to-day decisions, but we must be responsible for long-range decisions, the results of which may not show up for several hundred years." — William Penn Mott, Jr.
During that time he also founded the California State Parks Foundation, served as president and CEO, and maintained association with it through 1985. During that period, land and historic artifacts worth over $50 million were acquired and deeded over to state parks.
Over the years, CSPF grew from a small organization to the largest statewide nonprofit dedicated to state parks across the entirety of California.
This history of citizen engagement to identify places of value, to engage with them and to engage policymakers in ensuring protection for natural resources and this is our proud legacy. This history is true to the California spirit and is at the heart of our state parks system.
