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.
In the last nine years alone, the organization has awarded more than $5.3 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.
