Your Gifts at Work

Many of the trails you hike, wildlife you see and magnificent overlooks you visit are here because of the work you fund through Yosemite Conservancy.

As the philanthropic organization dedicated exclusively to Yosemite National Park, the Conservancy has been working to improve visitors’ experiences for more than 90 years. Your support has allowed us to provide more than $81 million in grants to fund Yosemite’s highest-priority projects in recent years.

150th Anniversary of the Yosemite Grant Act
Join the celebration! In 1864, when President Abraham Lincoln signed the Yosemite Grant Act, he ensured the preservation of Yosemite Valley and the Mariposa Grove of Giant Sequoias, launching the national park movement. This milestone is being commemorated throughout the year through activities in the park and in our surrounding communities. Your support is funding a special museum exhibit to commemorate the signing of the Yosemite Grant Act.
Youth in Yosemite
Your support of Youth in Yosemite Programs is transforming lives. From young children who learn about nature through the Junior Ranger program, to underserved high school students experiencing the wilderness for the first time, these programs build lifelong connections to nature and forge the next generation of stewards.
Why I Give

I consider Yosemite my second home. To me, it comes naturally to want to support a place that you love so much.
