The Great Basin National Park Foundation was established in 1998 to support Great Basin National Park. The Foundation is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization.

The Foundation has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars and has been able to support Great Basin National Park in several projects, including increasing access to park trails, recording and transcribing oral histories, and designing and fabricating museum exhibits for the new Great Basin Visitor Center in Baker, Nevada.
