About the Crater Lake Trust

The Crater Lake National Park Trust works to help protect, promote, and enhance Crater Lake National Park, its unique water purity, and its value for human inspiration and knowledge.

We envision a future in which Crater Lake National Park is widely recognized as an Oregon icon and a national treasure; in which the Park serves as a thriving laboratory and classroom; and in which every Oregonian and growing numbers of others feel a deep connection and love for Crater Lake. 

History of the Trust

The Crater Lake National Park Trust was formed during planning for the Park's 100th anniversary in 2002, and originally operated as a committee of the National Park Foundation. The Trust became independent in late 2006 and was operating as a fund of the Oregon Community Foundationwhile also seeking independent nonprofit status.  The Trust obtained its tax exempt status in January of 2008 and is now operating as an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
