Battle Born Guardian

Battle Born Guardians - Nevada Companies Supporting Nevada’s National Park

The Battle Born Guardian Program is a special way for Great Basin National Park Foundation to recognize Nevada business support of Nevada’s National Park.

As the Park’s official nonprofit partner, Great Basin National Park Foundation protects the Park and Great Basin region through various funding sources, including generous grant programs and Great Basin Guardians, our individual giving program. The new Battle Born Guardian corporate giving program is a philanthropic alliance reserved exclusively for Nevada-based companies. With your unrestricted corporate gift, your company is helping to ensure our state’s only national park has the resources and support it needs to thrive.

As a Battle Born Guardian your support will help:

  • Enable 10,000 Park visitors to see the cosmos at Great Basin National Park Astronomy programs each year.

  • Thousands more Park visitors to tour Lehman Caves.

  • Nevadan students to benefit from their national park through Great Basin science education programs (including in classroom, virtual, and field trips).

  • Nevadan students to use the Great Basin Observatory to study black holes, supernovae, double stars, and more.

  • Nevadan underserved youth to experience a remote national park and camp for the first time.

  • Provide for needed Park improvements. The Foundation has invested over $2 million in trails, visitor centers, exhibits, and safety equipment.

Tailor Battle Born Guardian to Your Corporate Culture

Shape your company’s participation in the Battle Born Guardians to maximize participation and impact. By tailoring your participation, you can do what’s best to meet your company’s corporate giving goals. Think about what your company, your employees, and your customers care about the most. We'll work together to figure out the best way to maximize your involvement, whether that's through a direct donation, a program where your company matches employee donations or a way to get your customers involved.
