Return of Aid to Parks
Despite the many challenges and severe financial impact the pandemic had on Eastern National in Fiscal Years 2020 and 2021, we have recovered nicely. Eastern National had a record sales year in FY 2022 of over $47.3M, an 8% increase over 2019. It was our highest sales year ever. This, along with conservative expense management, enabled EN to pay out prior year Aid to Parks funds in the amount of $2.9M, and also Aid to Parks for sites that were open during the pandemic in the amount of $1.7M, totaling over $4.4M to our National Park partners in FY 2022. We appreciate the patience of our park partners during this time and are excited to see how your Aid to Park funds support your educational and interpretive efforts in 2023.
