Porte’s #DoorToChange³ program is growing! We are proud to announce the newest charity to join our program, the National Park Foundation.
National Park Foundation is the fourth charity to join our #DoorToChange program, giving Porte members a wider variety of charity options to support. Read on to learn more about who the National Park Foundation is, what they do, and how your everyday purchases can support their work.
Who is the National Park Foundation?
As the official nonprofit partner of the National Park Service (NPS), the National Park Foundation (NPF) helps protect more than 84 million acres of America’s treasures through critical conservation and preservation efforts and connect all people with their incomparable natural landscapes, vibrant culture, and rich history.
What does the National Park Foundation do?
In 1967, in an effort to continue to support and aid America’s National Park System, Congress chartered the National Park Foundation, making it the official charitable partner of the National Park Service.
Today, with the support of our donors, the National Park Foundation works to protect our natural, cultural, and historical heritage and connect people to all that the parks have to offer.
Some key areas of their work include making park infrastructures more environmentally friendly and sustainable, landscape and wildlife conservation, preserving places of historical and cultural significance, connecting first-time visitors to national parks through hands-on learning experiences, and so much more.
How can I support the National Park Foundation?
Supporting the National Park Foundation, or any other charity that we have partnered with, is easy with Porte’s #DoorToChange program. We made the process simple: when you buy or pay for something, we make a separate donation equal to a portion of the purchase price to your selected charity. It doesn’t cost you anything. Donations to the National Park Foundation help safeguard our national heritage, ensuring generations of national park enthusiasts can enjoy the places we love.
Follow these steps to start supporting a cause that matters to you:
- Log in to your Porte app.¹
- Select “Support a cause that matters to you” from the dashboard.

Although you can only support one charity at a time, you can change your selected charity as often as you like. You can also see an approximate amount generated from the Porte community for each cause in the #DoorToChange section in the Porte App.
