Yankee Leisure Group (YLG) and its brands Amtrak Vacations and Yankee Holidays have announced a multiyear partnership with the National Park Foundation (NPF), the official charity of America’s national parks.
Why It Matters:
YLG brands have more than 55 unique national parks itineraries, making them a strong supporter of the park system. Through this new partnership, NPF will receive a portion of revenue from any Amtrak Vacations or Yankee Holidays national parks program. The donation will help NPF protect national parks, connect people from all backgrounds to its destinations and National Park Service programs and inspire the next generation of park stewards. This is a great match for clients interested in philanthropy and the outdoors.
