Preserve, restore, educate, advocate…


The mission of the Sierra State Parks Foundation is to provide critically needed financial and professional support to the Lake Tahoe-Donner Sierra State Parks for education, restoration, and cultural and environmental preservation in partnership with California State Parks. Join us today!


The Sierra State Parks Foundation (SSPF) believes that the Lake Tahoe and Donner area California State Parks are unique treasures worthy of our support.  We fund projects and educational programs that connect visitors with our rich natural resources and cultural heritage.  Because of this work and advocacy, our parks will continue to be places of education and inspiration for generations to come. 


The Sierra State Parks Foundation has directed more than $3.5 million to Lake Tahoe-Donner State Park projects since its inception in 1974. There is a critical need to fill the gap between the fees collected at the parks and allocated by the legislature and what it takes to provide education, interpretation and cultural and natural resources preservation.    JOIN US and SUPPORT FUNDING PRIORITIES.
