Sitka Legacy Foundation is the new name for Greater Sitka Legacy Fund. We are an Affiliate of The Alaska Community Foundation building a permanent endowment for Sitka and rural communities on Baranof Island to support local resilience and self-reliance. We are committed to maintaining Sitka as a vital, progressive, and healthy community where people can live, work, raise families, and retire. We raise funds, make grants, and support local nonprofits. We nurture a local culture of philanthropy by connecting generous members of our community with great causes and options for giving their time and resources.
How Pick.Click.Give. makes a difference
Sitka is a community of people committed to working together. Sitka Legacy Foundation celebrates our unique historic and natural 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 our funds were established in 2013, we have made more than $53,000 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, SLF benefits from services and infrastructure provided through ACFs statewide office in Anchorage. This partnership allows for greater efficiency in operations and a higher portion of contributions to be directed back into the local community through SLF grantmaking programs. A part-time program manager is supported through grants from Rasmuson Foundation and ACF, and SLF does not have office space in Sitka. Donations through Pick.Click.Give support our very modest operating expenses, such as a post office box, stamps, and the cost of community events.
