Florida State Parks Foundation
Our story

In coordination with and support of the Florida Park Service, the Florida State Parks Foundation provides education, communication and support services to local citizen support organizations (CSOs) to ensure the sustainability, protection, restoration and interpretation of the system of Florida State Parks.

The relationship between the Florida Park Service and the Florida State Parks Foundation is an enduring, collaborative and complementary partnership with the shared vision to preserve, protect and sustain the Florida State Parks and therefore provide value-added benefits to the state of Florida in its entirety.

The foundation’s mission is to support and help sustain the Florida Park Service through programs that:

  • Preserve and protect state parks.
  • Increase universal access to state parks.
  • Educate and bring children to state parks.
  • Educate decision makers about the value of state parks.
  • Encourage community engagement and active use of state parks.
  • Provide financial support for park projects that supplement state and friends group funding.

For Almost 30 Years

The Florida State Parks Foundation is a nonprofit organization of dedicated members and volunteers who help preserve the natural beauty and resources of the Real Florida for generations to come. It was founded in 1993 as the Friends of Florida State Parks and in 2018 the name was changed.
