The NFF’s Stewardship Funds provide a chance for guests to support the places they play. These unique programs collect voluntary donations from guests and invest those funds back into the National Forest where the lodge or ski resort operates.
The National Forest Foundation’s Ski Conservation Fund gives ski areas and lodges an easy way for guests to be stewards of the lands they enjoy. Ski-related businesses collect small, voluntary donations from their guests to support conservation and restoration work on local National Forests. Together with businesses and forest visitors, we meet local conservation challenges—whether improving wildlife habitat, securing riverbanks, planting native seeds, or fixing trails. every dollar contributed by guests is matched by the NFF with $0.50, which increases the impact of this signature program.
The National Forest Foundation’s Forest Stewardship Fund gives non-ski-related lodges an easy way for guests to be stewards of the lands they enjoy. Lodges collect small, voluntary donations from their guests to support conservation and restoration projects on local National Forests. The NFF pools these contributions and invests the funds with local conservation organizations to accomplish restoration work on the National Forest near each participating lodge.
The National Forest Foundation’s Trail Stewardship Fund gives runners an opportunity to give back to the trails they enjoy. When runners sign up for a race, they’ll have the opportunity to add a small donation to their entry fee to ensure runners for generations to come can enjoy the same trails. The NFF then pools the contributions from all runners and invests the funds to trail restoration work on National Forests.
