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 $100 million in grants to fund Yosemite’s highest-priority projects in recent years.
