Endowments


The Friends of Peninsula State Park have established three endowment funds. You may contribute to these funds or establish such contributions as part of your estate planning.

Interpretive Nature Center Fund

This fund is the focus of the campaign to raise $450,000 for expansion of the Nature Center. Donations will support the addition of flush toilets, a storage and work room, and meeting space. Optional additions include a deck and increased parking.

"For Now and the Future" Fund

The purpose of this fund is to support the ongoing efforts of the park, an increasingly important undertaking considering state budget constraints that impact even the day-to-day activities of the park.

Endowment for Peninsula Research

This fund will support senior or graduate level research projects involving biological, ecological and historic research projects at Peninsula State Park.

 

Endowment Management

The Door County Community Foundation is responsible for the investment management of these funds. The operation and distribution of assets from the Interpretive Nature Center Fund and the For Now and the Future Fund will be done by the Friends’ Board of Directors working with park management.
