Our mission is to promote individual self-development and economic self-sufficiency through education and to maintain pride in culture and heritage among Alaska Natives who are original enrollees of Cook Inlet Region and their descendants.

How Pick.Click.Give. makes a difference
The major goal of The CIRI Foundation (TCF) is to encourage the education and career development of TCF’s Alaska Native beneficiaries through post-secondary scholarships and grants, research and other education projects.

A second goal is to perpetuate and enhance the heritage of Cook Inlet region’s Alaska Native people through programs that foster appreciation and understanding by the general public. The CIRI Foundation strives to support continued living traditions through selected heritage publications and media productions that enhance appreciation and understanding of Alaska Native cultures among Alaska Natives and all people.

Earnings from its endowments and other private donations fund The CIRI Foundation. Because it is a non-profit organization with a charitable purpose, TCF is exempt from federal income tax under the IRS Code Section 501(c)(3). Since its establishment in 1982, The CIRI Foundation has contributed more than $22.3 million for the Alaska Native beneficiaries of CIRI to participate in post-secondary education and training. Approximately $2.3 million has been distributed through The CIRI Foundation Education and Heritage Project Grant Program toward other non-profit organization projects that further the goals of The CIRI Foundation by serving our people, Alaska Natives and Alaskans.

The CIRI Foundation (TCF) is a private foundation established in 1982 by the Cook Inlet Region, Inc. (CIRI) Board of Directors to encourage education and career development of Alaska Native original enrollees of Cook Inlet Region, Inc. and their direct lineal descendants.

Private sector contributions are the primary source of funds for the programs and administration of TCF. The major source of private sector funds is derived from earnings from The CIRI Foundation's several endowments, of which CIRI is the primary contributor.
