​For more than a century, U.S. soldiers stationed at the Presidio of San Francisco defended the nation, influenced global events, and built one of the most beautiful military posts in the world. In 1994, the Army departed and the Presidio became a national park.

Over two decades, the Presidio has undergone an exciting revitalization led by the Presidio Trust, the National Park Service, and the non-profit Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy. Today, more than 200 organizations and 3,000 residents call the Presidio home, and millions of visitors enjoy the park's history, nature, and public programs.

The next Presidio site poised for re-imagination is Fort Winfield Scott. Once a campus dedicated to defending the Golden Gate, its beautiful Mission Revival buildings are now available to be rehabilitated by a mission-driven organization working to address the significant environmental and/or social issues of our time.
