The Indiana Natural Resources Foundation celebrates and preserves Indiana’s natural legacy by raising funds to support the Indiana Department of Natural Resources and its programs.

In 1990, the Indiana General Assembly created the Indiana Natural Resources Foundation, a not-for-profit Section 115 Foundation, to work with our community to protect and preserve important natural areas. Contributions to the Foundation are tax deductible as allowable by law.
