National Parks Foundation
The National Park Foundation, a Washington,-D.C.-based organization that supports the national park system, has selected The Sequoia Parks Foundation to receive a $75,000 grant for a major new project in Kings Canyon National Park. This grant, funded as a part of the National Park Foundation’s “Legacy Project,” will provide more than half the funding required to reconstruct the Panoramic Point Trail in Kings Canyon National Park to meet Universal Access standards.
The Sequoia Parks Foundation, with the generous help from individual donors and The Jeangerard Family Foundation have raised the matching funds needed to complete this important project by end of summer 2013.
Southern California Edison
Sequoia Parks Foundation is very proud of our longstanding partnership with Southern California Edison. Southern California Edison www.sce.com is one of the largest electric utilities in California, and serves more than 14 million people in a 50,000 square-mile area of central, coastal and Southern California.
Currently, Edison’s multi-year commitment of financial and intellectual support is helping the Foundation to achieve our capacity building goals, leverage additional support, and launch a 2016 Centennial Campaign, enabling the Foundation to bring the philanthropic support, knowledge, and partnerships to the Parks to create the new margin of excellence required by the challenges of the 21st century.

Sequoia Parks Foundation would like to showcase our partnership with Delaware North Companies (DNC), a global leader in hospitality and foodservice and one of the largest privately held companies in North America, with approximately $2 billion in revenues and more than 50,000 employees.
Throughout our partnership DNC has donated more than $150,000 to Sequoia Parks Foundation for park projects and various programs, including Rangers in the Classroom, an elementary education program in Tulare and Fresno Counties.
We would especially like to acknowledge DNC’s support during our Advisor Retreat, held this past summer at Wuksachi Lodge.
