The Gateway Arch Park Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with a mission to ensure that the Gateway Arch, its grounds, neighboring public space, and attractions will be a vital, welcoming, and well-supported resource for the community and nation for generations to come.
Founded in 2009 to support and coordinate a project to connect, invigorate and expand the Arch grounds, the Foundation is a conservancy that collaborates with partners to operate and maintain the improvements made through the CityArchRiver project.
Free events at the Gateway Arch Park and support for the National Park are made possible by our donors. Friends of the Gateway Arch Park Foundation get great benefits to enhance their Arch experience.

Acknowledging this, the National Park Service created a new general management plan for the Arch grounds in 2009, the first such update in 40 years. The same year, The City + The Arch + The River 2015: Framing a Modern Masterpiece International Design Competition was launched. An immense public private project began in 2013 when CityArchRiver Project partners broke ground on a new plan to reimagine, connect, enhance, and transform the Arch and surrounding park for future generations.Learn More
