Arizona state parks donationsArizona’s state park system does not receive General Fund monies that the state generates through taxes. Arizona’s state parks are funded directly by camping, cabin and tour fees; park admission; annual pass sales; and donations. When you visit the state parks, you are directly supporting our rangers, trail maintenance, clean restrooms, and safety.

As a self-sustaining agency, it is vital to receive public support for ongoing costs and upgrades to the park system you enjoy.

The ideas of conservation and sustainability can be put into action by people who care about the future of Arizona’s beautiful, open spaces. It takes a community to conserve and maintain these places and keep them open and available for everyone to enjoy. It is possible for you to make a difference to strengthen Arizona’s state park system by making a tax-deductible donation.

Because you truly care about Arizona’s state parks, and sharing your love of the outdoors, your donation plays a crucial role in ensuring the parks are available for generations to come.  

Your donation will not be used for salaries of agency employees or other administrative costs.

How will your donation be used?

  • Improvement projects like playgrounds, restrooms, and other infrastructure to improve park experiences
  • Repairs to existing buildings and structures within the parks, including historic structures.
  • Trail maintenance and construction
  • Organized clean-ups throughout Arizona
  • Park operational costs, including supplies and equipment to maintain the park.

To donate to a specific park or project, please choose from the available options on the donation page. All donations are tax-deductible.
