Trust for Public Land
Illustration by Cait Brennan

The Trust for Public Land helps structure, negotiate, and complete land transactions that create parks, playgrounds, and protected natural areas. They buy land from willing landowners and then transfer it to public agencies, land trusts, or other groups for permanent protection.

Since 1972, The Trust for Public Land has completed more than 5,200 park and conservation projects, conserved more than 3 million acres, and helped generate more than $33 billion in state and local conservation funding—through the power of public donations and community involvement.

TPL's hope is that, in the future, no one in America is more than 10 minutes away from public land, providing everyone with a space to learn, gather, exercise and play.

Why donate?

Over four decades, The Trust for Public Land has saved 3.3 million acres.

Every $1 donated to The Trust for Public Land conserves more than $4 worth of land. 

Until December 15, all gifts made to The Trust for Public Land will be matched $2 to $1.

That’s $12 worth of land for every dollar donated!

"The Trust for Public Land strives to protect our country's most beloved national parks, as well as develop close-to-home parks for people in urban areas. (What an awesome, beautiful mission, right?!) I personally have witnessed just how much parks, large and small, promote health and wellness, awaken complete wonderment for kids and adults alike, and encourage strong, caring communities. Support The Trust for Public Land, then go soak up everything your local park has to offer!"
