Support Our OBX National Parks
(Update: If you’re interested in supporting your parks but have questions, click here and easily schedule a virtual chat with our Director, Jessica Barnes.)
Outer Banks Forever provides a great way for people like you who are passionate about the history and environment of OBX to give back to the places that have given you so much. We each have a deep connection and memories at Cape Hatteras National Seashore, Fort Raleigh National Historic Site, and the Wright Brothers National Memorial – and these precious places need you now more than ever!
Together, we can:
- Improve ways to experience our parks
- Introduce youth and families to our parks who might not otherwise have the opportunity
- Provide research dollars to better understand our parks
- Enhance volunteer opportunities in our parks
- Bring our community together to ensure our parks continue to serve visitors and local community needs
When you give today, you join our growing philanthropic community that gives back to these iconic national parks.
Ways to Give:
Become a Founding Donor: With your gift of $50 or more (or at least $5/month recurring gift) you will receive our monthly e-newsletter with insider interviews and behind the scenes looks at what’s happening in your parks. You will also be invited to special events and experiences in your parks throughout the year, including an exclusive invitation to our 1st Birthday celebration to thank you for your support.
Become a Forever Founder: This year only, you can help us take flight with a gift of $1,000 or more (or an $85/month recurring gift) and receive lifetime recognition as a Forever Founder. Learn more about the many benefits of being a Forever Founder here.

What is an OBX Local Partner?
