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.

Corporate Partnership Opportunities

We work with corporate partners to design custom cause-related marketing, sponsorship, strategic restoration and other partnerships that restore our National Forests and provide businesses with high quality outreach opportunities.

Our signature Ski Conservation Fund (SCF) and Forest Stewardship Fund (FSF) programs provide funding for action-oriented on-the-ground restoration projects that improve forest health and outdoor experiences on National Forests and Grasslands. Funds come from guest contributions at ski areas and lodges operating on or adjacent to National Forest System lands, and we add additional funding for the SCF program to increase our impact and get more done on the ground.
