The Valley Falls State Park Foundation is hoping to raise funds to become a recognized non profit organization.
The foundation aims to solicit and receive contributions and grants in support of Valley Falls State Park.

The foundation is currently raising funds to obtain a 501C3 status from the IRS.
The title will allow it to receive additional funding from the state for future projects.
