Missouri State Park System Donations

Missouri's state park system needs your support. By making a donation, you can personally help us preserve and maintain Missouri's 91 state parks and historic sites. With your help, we can continue to provide the many special places across Missouri that preserve our state's most outstanding natural landscapes and cultural landmarks and provide recreational opportunities.

The state park system's primary funding source is half of the dedicated one-tenth-of-one-percent Parks, Soils and Water Sales Tax, which provides about 75 percent of the system's budget. The remainder of our funding comes from camping revenues, concession revenues, souvenir sales and fees. The state park system does not receive any general revenue.

You can make a donation to benefit the state park system overall, or you may designate your gift to a specific state park or state historic site.

Your tax-deductible donations will help us repair and maintain existing buildings such as orientation centers, lodges and historic structures as well as provide new public facilities and services such as boardwalks, educational exhibits, upgraded campgrounds and interpretive programming.
