Foundation partners help Yosemite Conservancy preserve and protect Yosemite and provide Youth In Yosemite Programs to underserved youth.


With the support of our foundation partners, Yosemite Conservancy has funded numerous projects throughout Yosemite National Park, including the Campaign for Mariposa Grove, the Tenaya Lake restoration project and the replacement of Yosemite’s historic stagecoach.

This year, Conservancy donors will fund 41 projects ranging from wildlife conservation to trail rehabilitation to our signature Youth in Yosemite Programs. This diverse group of projects and programs creates numerous philanthropic opportunities for foundations with varying giving strategies while ensuring that Yosemite is preserved and protected for generations to come.

To learn more about this year’s projects or to arrange a tour, please contact Laurie Peterson at or 415-434-8446 x328.
