ABOUT THE NATIONAL PARK FOUNDATION The National Park Foundation is the official charity of America's 394 national parks, including the South Lawn of the White House. NPF assists in the coordination and planning of the annual White House Easter Egg Roll and also accepts donations to benefit the event. Chartered by Congress, NPF works hand in hand with the National Park Service to strengthen and connect all Americans to our parks, so they are protected for present and future generations. It is a legacy that began more than a century ago, when private citizens took action to first establish, then protect and endow our national parks. Today, the National Park Foundation carries on that tradition as the only national charitable partner for America's national parks. To learn more visit www.nationalparks.org.
