YELLOWSTONE PARK FOUNDATION INC's Fundraiser:

Help Protect Yellowstone's Bears

YELLOWSTONE PARK FOUNDATION INC's Photo

THE STORY:

Bear boxes are a proven method to help minimize conflict and keep bears and people safe. Yet, less than 25% of the campsites in Yellowstone's roadside campgrounds have these critical bear boxes installed!

YOU can make a difference today by donating to the Yellowstone Bear Box Fund or by creating your own fundraiser for this vital program!

Our goal is to raise $37,500 (that covers the cost of 25 bear boxes in Yellowstone).

We thank you and Yellowstone’s black and grizzly bears thank you!

Benefits of Donating

  • Feel good about your donation!
  • Donate $25 or more and we’ll send you our Official Guide to Yellowstone.
  • Donate $50 or more and we’ll send you a great looking Yellowstone Park Foundation t-shirt featuring the silhouette of a grizzly sow and cub on the back.
  • Donate $100 or more and we’ll send you a beautiful book of Yellowstone images, The Abundance of Summer, by renowned photographer, Tom Murphy. 

Create Your Own Fundraiser to Sponsor a Bear Box in Yellowstone!

You (or a group of friends, family, co-workers) can sponsor an entire Bear Box for $1,500!  Once you reach $1,500, we will arrange to install a bear box in a Yellowstone campground in your honor. Your name, or your group’s name, will be engraved on a metal plate that will be permanently affixed to the box. See an example here.
