Leveraging the power of our strategic partnerships, the California State Parks Foundation finds, funds and supports organizations to expand access, improve equity and maintain park excellence. As a park-supporting organization, we strive to be strategic and responsive to the needs of all Californians.
Keeping Parks Whole Grant Round
After months of closures due to COVID-19, state parks are now trying to navigate a fight for funding in the California State Budget. With proposals to cut $30 million in on-going general funds, elimination of funding for outdoor equity grants, and loss of state park personnel through unfunded positions, the start park system is greatly jeopardized.
To help keep parks whole during this difficult time, we ran a closed grant round of $100,000 to support evolving needs of parks in response to COVID-19 and funding threats.
