Sierra State Parks Foundation

Preserve, restore, educate, advocate…

Our Story


The Sierra State Parks Foundation is the official cooperating association for seven California State Parks in the Lake Tahoe-Donner region. We are a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with the mission of providing critically needed financial and professional support for education, interpretation, restoration, and preservation consistent with the mission of California State Parks.

SSPF provides support to seven California State Parks: Washoe Meadows, Emerald Bay, DL Bliss, Ed Z’Berg Sugar Pine Point, Donner Memorial as well as Tahoe, Kings Beach State Recreation Areas.

The Sierra State Parks Foundation believes that the Lake Tahoe-Donner area California State Parks are unique treasures worthy of our support.

We fund projects and educational programs that connect visitors with our rich cultural heritage and natural resources.

Because of our work and advocacy, our parks will continue to be places of inspiration and education for generations to come.
