The Foundation for the Preservation of the Santa Susana Mountains and the Santa Susana Pass State Historic Park are assisted by a number of other organizations. 

The following are links to a few of them. 

The Santa Susana Mountain Park Association (SSMPA) is a 501(c)(4) non-profit established in 1970 to serve as stewards of the Santa Susana Pass State Historic Park (SSPSHP) and surrounding areas, and to continue to preserve and protect habitats for plants and animals native to the location, unique geological formations, and sites of ethnological, archaeological, and historic interest.  SSMPA seeks to provide passive recreational and environmental education opportunities, support the acquisition of new public parks, open space and conservation easements, expand existing natural parks, and to participate in the planning of park infrastructure and programs.

The California State Parks Foundation (CSPF) was founded in 1969 by William Penn Mott, Jr., former director of both California's Department of Parks and Recreation and the National Park Service. With 130,000 members, CSPF is the only statewide independent nonprofit organization dedicated to protecting, enhancing and advocating for California's magnificent state parks. Since 1969, CSPF has raised more than $186 million to benefit state parks. CSPF is committed to improving the quality of life for all Californians by expanding access to the natural beauty, rich culture and history, and recreational and educational opportunities offered by California's 278 state parks—the largest state park system in the United States.
