Mission & History
The Friends of Lory State Park began in the fall of 2012 with a “steering committee.” In April 2013, the committee voted to incorporate as a non-profit organization with the purpose of supporting the Park. The Friends of Lory applied for 501(c)(3) non-profit status in March 2014 and received that status September 18, 2014. The FoLSP Board of Directors is a working board that guides the projects and the work we do, all with the goal of supporting Lory State Park. We welcome donations and new memberships to help grow our ability to support the Park.
For donation purposes, our EIN is 46-2565796.
Friends of Lory State Park provides volunteer assistance to the management of Lory State Park. In this capacity, the Friends group works to foster stewardship, enhance educational and recreational opportunities in partnership with the Park, and advocates quality programs for visitors of all ages and backgrounds.
Friends of Lory State Park is dedicated to the protection, preservation, and enhancement of the Park. The Friends group serves as a supportive entity to complement the goals of Lory State Park.
