Make a Donation
We are pleased to announce that the newly renovated Furnace Creek Visitor Center includes a Donor Wall and flipbook to recognize Death Valley National Park supporters. The Donor Wall design emulates Death Valley’s salt pan polygons, and the exhibit can grow as donors show their support for Death Valley National Park.
Gifts designated to support Death Valley National Park can be made directly to the Death Valley Natural History Association.
Donors listed represent donations received after September 1, 2011. Giving can be a cumulative or one-time gift. Individuals announcing their intention to make a planned gift as part of their estate planning can also be recognized.
Special funds have been established to give donors the ability to specify where their contributions are utilized based on significant needs identified by the National Park Service. Recognition opportunities are available on the Donor Wall for donations over $1,000.
Donor Wall Giving Levels:
Golden Canyon: $5,000-$9,999
Zabriskie Point: $10,000-$49,999

Donor Designated Funds
Scotty’s Castle Historic Preservation Fund
Presenting daily living history tours for the public and preserving a 1930’s landmark on the National Register of Historic Places is a remarkable undertaking in any location, but in a remote region of Death Valley National Park it is truly an extraordinary challenge. Scotty’s Castle has many un-funded preservation projects. Your donations will keep this amazing and mysterious story alive into the future.
Death Valley R.O.C.K.S. Education Fund
Since 2008, the R.O.C.K.S. (Recreation Outdoors Campaign for Kids through Study) program has brought over 1,000 students to Death Valley National Park for a three-day, education adventure. These students get a rigorous environmental education curriculum led by Park Rangers. They can see the clear night sky for the first time in their lives, learn about Death Valley’s geologic secrets, and participate in exploring the many ways plants and animals have adapted to the desert environment. This life-changing experience exposes students to public lands and National Park Service careers. The next generation of Death Valley and National Park stewards is counting on you to support learning in Death Valley.
Death Valley Wilderness Preservation Fund
Death Valley National Park is approximately 91% wilderness. Death Valley National Park has un-funded park projects to remove non-historic debris from the park’s wilderness and backcountry. There are several more backcountry sites that need cultural assessments to determine how best to return the spaces to wilderness character. The Wilderness Preservation Fund will support these types of projects as well as the further implementation of Death Valley’s Wilderness and Backcountry Stewardship Plan, making a difference for generations to come.
