About Us

Washington’s National Park Fund is the official philanthropic partner of our cherished Mount Rainier, North Cascades and Olympic National Parks.

The organization was established in 1993 by well-known leaders in our state: former Governor and Senator Dan Evans, legendary mountaineer Lou Whittaker and other prominent community leaders. Together, they knew the three largest national parks in this state needed – and most importantly deserved additional attention and financial support.

The organization went by various names during its early years, but its mission and vision has remained the same.

Mission: To raise private support to deepen the public’s love for, understanding of, and experiences in Mount Rainier, North Cascades and Olympic National Parks.

Vision: For our three parks to be strong and vibrant, youthful and everlasting.

Over the last ten years, the organization has awarded more than $5.85 million to support Mount Rainier, North Cascades and Olympic National Parks. It is the only philanthropic organization dedicated solely to these three parks and 100% of the donations stay in Washington State for this purpose.
