Thank you for voting for Mount Rainier!
Thousands of you embraced the #VoteYourPark Partners in Preservation campaign, and as a top finisher based on popular vote, Mount Rainier will receive a grant of $42,000. Thank you for your daily votes!
The grant will be applied toward restoring a historic Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) cabin in the Longmire Historic District. A total of $218,000 in funding is needed to renovate the Rustic-style cabin to provide much-needed housing for volunteer search and rescue volunteers.
These volunteers are critical to park emergency operations! With more than 1.8 million visitors a year experiencing Mount Rainier’s trails, search and rescue teams are called into action at a moment’s notice to help.

THESE PARKS ARE YOURS
The beauty of Mount Rainier, North Cascades, and Olympic National Parks is staggering. Sadly, these treasured lands are woefully underfunded. Your support fills the critical gaps. Together with support from other individuals, families, foundations and corporations, we make a real and impressive impact. Thanks to many, that impact is growing. As the national park system celebrates its 100th anniversary this year, be a part of the growing and ongoing force for good for our iconic national parks. These parks are yours!
The future of what happens with these parks just completely depends on how much you care about these places.
The streams, craggy spires and moss-coated trees became both church and playground. My family bonded as we shared in these experiences.
Our national parks need to be safeguarded so future generations are able to enjoy them.
Mount Rainier National Park is a powerful place that encompasses all you would expect from a national park. The Fund enables people who love their parks to help the parks through philanthropy.
I love showing the parks off to visitors to our area, and I want to make sure they are maintained for the future for others to enjoy.
Expansion of youth and family programs make it possible for those of all backgrounds to visit the parks, learn to care for and protect park resources, and guide the next generation of stewards.
Supporting Science and Research
At our Spring Dinner and Auction on April 23, 2016, science and research – one of our four core areas of funding – was the focus of the special Fund-A-Need appeal. Thanks to 337 of our closest friends, more than $62,000 was raised for vital projects! In all, more than $250,000 was raised at the event to benefit Mount Rainier, North Cascades, and Olympic National Parks. To learn more about the needs of the parks, please view our new video produced by our dear friends at Clatter & Din.
Thanks to all who came, who gave, and who volunteer!
