The Greater Sitka Legacy Fund, an Affiliate of The Alaska Community Foundation, is building a permanent endowment for the Sitka area to support local resilience and self-reliance. We are committed to supporting a vital, progressive, and healthy community where people can live, work, raise families, and retire. The Greater Sitka Legacy Fund also promotes ways for people to give their time, talent, and resources in support of this mission.
How Pick.Click.Give. makes a difference
Sitka is a community of people committed to working together. The Greater Sitka Legacy Fund celebrates our unique historical and environmental heritages, and embraces life through spiritual, artistic, athletic, and cultural expression, promoting education and economic prosperity; all to sustain the well-being of our necessary organizations and of our citizens of every age. Since GSLF was established in 2013, we have made more than $28,000 in grants to local nonprofit organizations. As our permanent endowment grows through generous local donations and matching contributions from Rasmuson Foundation and The Alaska Community Foundation, we will be able to offer more support for our community.
As an Affiliate of The Alaska Community Foundation, GSLF benefits from the shared services and infrastructure provided through ACF. This partnership allows for greater efficiency in operations and a higher portion of contributions to be directed back into the local community through GSLF grantmaking programs. A part-time program manager is supported through grants from Rasmuson Foundation and ACF, and GSLF does not have office space. Donations through Pick.Click.Give support our very modest operating expenses, such as a post office box, stamps, and the cost of community events.
