About the Presidio Trust

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Working with the National Park Service and the non-profit Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy, and at no cost to taxpayers, the Presidio Trust brings alive the unique historic, natural, and recreational assets of the Presidio for the inspiration, education, health, and enjoyment of all people.

The Presidio Trust is an unusual federal agency. In our founding legislation, the Presidio Trust was charged with operating without taxpayer support. Funds earned through leasing and the operation of our hospitality programs are used for park management and capital improvements. The Presidio Trust manages 80 percent of Presidio lands, including most of the six million square feet of building space, including the Fort Winfield Scott campus. The National Park Service manages the Presidio’s coastal areas.

The Presidio Trust is pursuing three goals to ensure that the Presidio will be preserved for the enjoyment of all people for generations to come:

  • The Presidio will be visited and loved by all.
  • The Presidio Trust will be a model of environmental stewardship.
  • The Presidio Trust will be a model of operational excellence and financial sustainability.
