Grand Teton National Park Foundation
The organization is a charity that works to directly support the cultural, historical, and natural programs of the park. They have funded and continue to fund a wide range of initiatives to improve and increase safe interaction with the park, strengthen educational initiatives, and support many other types of park efforts. For example, they fund trail improvement projects, programs to get kids learning in the park, and studies to improve the balance of wildlife in the park. One of their greatest achievements has been the private fundraising of $13.6 million to assist in the construction of the The Craig Thomas Discovery and Visitor Center. A truly remarkable building with countless resources and informative exhibits.
