Foundation and online donations
The Washington State Parks Foundation is the official charitable partner of Washington State Parks. The non-profit Foundation is committed to supporting state parks now and into the future. Donations to the Washington State Parks Foundation are fully tax-deductible and support on-the-ground park improvements, special education and arts events, park friends groups and more. Visit the Foundation’s website for more information – or make an online donation today.
House Bill 2339, passed by the 2009 Legislature, established a donation program tied to vehicle license renewals to help keep parks open in the face of budget reductions. The program continues to provide a significant portion of the funding necessary to operate State Parks. Here’s how it works: When you renew your vehicle license each year, your bill includes a $5 donation for State Parks. If you do not wish to donate, simply subtract the $5 donation when you pay.
