You Can Help Voyageurs National Park
What do you love about Voyageurs National Park? Perhaps it is the chance to experience seemingly endless blue lakes and quiet forests. Or to see bald eagles soar and hear timber wolves howl. You can enjoy Voyageurs National Park today because past generations worked hard to protect this extraordinary place. You can help ensure that Voyageurs is just as beautiful for future generations by supporting Voyageurs National Park Association.

With your tax-deductible membership, you’ll receive our print newsletter, Park Paddler e-newsletter, and invitations to special member events.

Charitable IRA Rollover is back
The Charitable IRA Rollover, reinstated in the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012, provides a timely giving option through all of 2013 to support VNPA. People ages 70 ½ and older may make direct tax-free distributions of up to $100,000 from individual retirement plans during the year to VNPA. You may consider a larger annual gift than you thought possible to VNPA with this IRA option. Contact your IRA custodian and VNPA for more details.
Make a difference by giving time. The Volunteer Rendezvous is a great way to help the park conserve its spectacular environment and experience its beauty first hand. Each year, VNPA organizes this weekend-long event to plant native trees in the Park or complete other priority tasks. Email us at email@example.com for more information on this and other volunteer opportunities.
