Who are we?
We are the philanthropic partner to Haleakalā National Park. We raise money for projects designed by park officials that would not be possible within their current government budget. Learn more about the individuals involved with the Haleakalā Conservancy [here].
Why do we exist?
We exist to raise funds for projects critical to the success and sustainability of the Park that is not being sufficiently funded through government support and visitor fees alone.
We exist because Haleakalā National Park is a rare and sacred landscape that should be both revered and accessible. We want to ensure that its unique ecosystems, species, culture, and spirit persist.
How are projects selected?
All projects are submitted by Park Staff to the Park Superintendent, who then prioritizes and relays that information to us. Within our partnership, we have a continuous conversation with the Superintendent about needs, costs, donor appetite, and providing a diversity of projects to fund.
Why is it important to support Haleakalā National Park?
Haleakalā National Park encompasses more endangered and endemic species than any other national park in the United States. The Park also protects a variety of unique cultural and natural resources. Financial support through Haleakalā Conservancy allows the Park to preserve the resources and wildlife that make it special. Many national parks have groups that financially support their efforts, as government funding simply does not cover all of their needs.
