No part of the funds of this organization are paid to any officer or member, directly or indirectly, nor used to benefit any officer or member. The Board has developed an Investment Policy for funds being held by the Juneau Community Foundation for special projects and programs.

In 2017 the FoJDCM supported the 150th celebration of Statehood with funds to produce educational banners that educate the public on the United States purchase of Russian interests in Alaska.
