Thank you, members, for your support

Thanks to YOU state parks had a great year.

We are so grateful. We’re lucky to live in the most beautiful state in the country and to have support from people like you.

In this season of thanks we wish to thank you — our Washington State Parks Foundation members — for an incredible year. Foundation donors and members helped state parks in so many ways – from boosting park funding in Olympia, to raising awareness for parks at events like the Outdoor Expo, Arts in the Parks and Shellfest, to helping parks across the state with our Small and Simple Grant Program and Friends Groups conference at Cama Beach State Park in September.

Your love of parks and the amazing weather this past summer have meant record attendance at campgrounds, and your generosity this year through events like the Seattle Foundation’s GiveBig — and the upcoming GivingTuesday event on December 1st! — help ensure that you and other visitors continue to have a quality experience. As you take stock of what this year has meant to you and what you’ve accomplished, please take a moment to thank yourself for how you’ve made other’s lives better through supporting state parks. With approximately 33 million visits to state parks this year, you are due heaps of gratitude!

We humbly thank everyone who supported the Washington State Parks Foundation in 2015. Together we can make next year even better.
