National Forest Foundation

Corporate Partnerships

As a corporate partner, there are many benefits to working with the National Forest Foundation. Your support reaps tangible conservation results for our nation’s forests, watersheds, wildlife, and recreation resources. The NFF’s corporate partners connect with thousands of outdoors enthusiasts, conservationists and our own Friends of the Forest. They also creatively engage employees and customers in helping support and care for our forests. Most importantly, in partnership with the NFF, companies can demonstrate their commitment to perpetuating our uniquely American legacy of public lands. The NFF is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit conservation organization, making your support tax-deductible.

The NFF recognizes our corporate partners in many ways, including through our web-site, various publications, e-newsletters and special events.
