The Palmer Community Foundation (PCF), an Affiliate of The Alaska Community Foundation (ACF), is building a permanent endowment to grow philanthropy and support a healthy community. We are committed to supporting a vital, progressive community where people can live, work, play, and retire.
As an Affiliate of The Alaska Community Foundation, PCF benefits from the shared services and administrative resources provided through ACF. This partnership allows for greater efficiency in operations and the maximum portion of contributions to be directed back into the local community. PCF’s goal is to both support and sustain the vibrant Matanuska River watershed community nonprofits by growing an endowment fund that, through grants, is responsive to local needs.
The Advisory Board brings local knowledge and expertise to address the unique needs of the Palmer community. Made up of a dedicated group of local volunteers, PCF supports a broad range of needs, including health and wellness, education, the great outdoors, arts and culture, and community development. We bring people and organizations together to address local issues and opportunities. We invest charitable resources in the long term while prioritizing progress today.
