Do you do business in Pennsylvania? If so, chances are good your employees (and perhaps you) enjoy the benefits of our free state parks and forests system.
The Pennsylvania Parks and Forests Foundation welcomes the participation of businesses and corporations in supporting our work and the great things being done in our parks and forests every day. How can your business become involved? You can make a donation, sponsor an event, fund an item on the Needs List, or become a corporate member.
With state parks or forests within reach of all major communities in Pennsylvania, there are many opportunities for businesses and non-profits to support PPFF’s efforts.
For example, these companies or organizations have provided event sponsorships to the Foundation, helping important programs to take place.
Educational Income Tax Credit (EITC)
Does your business believe in the power of education? Of course you do! The EITC program allows you to earn tax credit for your investment in smarter kids. A win-win!
Team-building need not take place in a classroom or on a ropes course. Sometimes empowerment comes in the form of a day of tree planting, invasive species removal, painting an education center, or removing litter from a beautiful Pennsylvania waterway.
Parks and Forests Needs
Nearly every park or forest in the system has placed a “need” in our spreadsheet of pending projects. These needs can be as simple as purchasing bird seed for the feeders used for environmental education programs to replacing antiquated lighting in public spaces. Whatever the need, there’s a potential partner who can fill it. Might that be your company or organization?
The Pennsylvania state parks and forests play an important role in your quality of life and that of your employees. Support them with a membership in the Foundation. Each membership level offers the opportunity for your business to be recognized. Find out more and join.

Pennsylvania Parks and Forests Foundation (PPFF) began in 1999 as a statewide nonprofit organization to provide a voice for the Commonwealth’s 121 state parks and 2.2 million acres of forest land. With PPFF, citizens can donate or bequeath money to state parks and forests, become active and involved volunteers in the park and forest system, and find some fun and educational opportunities.
