One of the most visited national park units in the United States needs special attention — yours!

Admiring the Blue Ridge Mountains is one thing, protecting it is another. Not just for ourselves, but for our childrens’ children. One of the most biologically diverse places on Earth, this fragile ecosystem depends upon compassionate care from its stewards above all else. Included in this magnificence are the 469 miles of the Blue Ridge Parkway, artfully woven into its stunning beauty — and accompanied by generations of pride.

Pride matters.

As The Blue Ridge Parkway’s primary private fundraising partner, the Blue Ridge Parkway Foundation helps ensure that the Parkway land, wildlife and visitors can survive and thrive. We work with the National Park Service to provide funds that educate visitors of all ages, help protect the park’s natural, historical and cultural resources and maintain visitor facilities on the Parkway. These proud contributions make your visit safer and more enjoyable whether you’re a hiker, camper or occasional sightseer.

Since our inception in 1997, The Foundation has provided more than $3.4 million in private support for projects and programs for the Blue Ridge Parkway that would have gone unfunded without our assistance. With your support, we see many bright years in the Parkway’s horizon. Learn More>
