California’s State Parks thrive when people care enough to give back. Whether it is a cash donation in box at a park, or leaving a legacy gift to honor your favorite place, donations keep our parks open and accessible to all, preserving these special places for future generations to enjoy.

You can make a tax-deductible donation to one of our state-wide partners listed below, or to one of the cooperating associations that support our state parks. You may even make a donation directly to California State Parks. To learn more, please contact the Partnerships Division at (916) 653-7733 or at
