The Park Foundation is a nonprofit foundation founded in 1966 by the businessman and media mogul Roy H. Park.
The foundation currently supports a variety of liberal and environmental causes, and has been a major supporter of the anti-fracking movement. From 2009 to 2012, the foundation gave "more than $3 million to dozens of advocacy groups and other institutions that oppose hydrofracking or to those that have produced research on the technique," including $175,000 to produce the documentary Gasland.
In 2011, the foundation reported having $335 million in assets.
