The vision of the Foundation is that Byways will be recognized and valued worldwide for their distinctive experiences, stories and treasured places.


The mission of the National Scenic Byway Foundation is to empower, strengthen, and help sustain byways.

Who We Are

  • The National Scenic Byway Foundation is an all-volunteer-organization that seeks to leverage the combined resources of its board and members to advance byways and amplify the voice of the national byway community. It is the only national organization dedicated to this purpose.
  • The Foundation is led by accomplished, dedicated, and visionary byway leaders as well as national byway experts, many of whom have dedicated entire careers to byways for over 25 years.

What We Do

The Foundation maintains the nation’s most extensive repository of byway resource materials, which, combined with the collective experience and expertise of our board and members, addresses the needs of the byway community nationwide.

  • The Foundation acknowledges and promotes the relevance of byways in today’s tourism economy.

How We Do It

  • The Foundation seeks to actively engage, support, and champion the needs of state scenic byway coordinators and byway leaders.
  • The Foundation understands the critical role of partners in achieving its mission, and seeks to develop and maintain meaningful partnerships to advance byways.

What Is Our Capacity?

  • The Foundation receives no government funding. All current programs are financed by membership dues and limited business sponsorships.
  • The Foundation’s ability to expand services and programs is contingent upon factors that include increased financial support from the byway community, our ability to demonstrate a critical mass of support from byways nationwide, and clearly articulated and measurable goals.

The National Scenic Byway Foundation is a nonprofit corporation with tax exempt status under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
