We strive to meet our mission by fundraising and friend-raising through partnerships with individuals, businesses and community organizations.

Our grants help foster educational experiences for teachers and students through our Inside Out Program, and by supplying foundation grants to Friends Groups of our Kentucky State Parks. Any park Friends Group can download the application and submit a grant proposal.

There are multiple ways you can help in the process:

  • Share our message with any friends, neighbors, teachers, educators or children’s groups that you believe could benefit from more time in nature.
  • You can also help by donating to the foundation, where 100% of your funds are used to connect people to our beautiful state parks.
