The goal of the Alaska Funders Group is to share information about critical issues and opportunities and to build relationships that inspire collaboration and change in Alaska. The agenda for each teleconference is created by participants, for participants.
We are pleased to welcome Diane Kaplan, president & CEO of Rasmuson Foundation, to our March convening. Diane will present Rasmuson Foundation’s work on the Alaska State Fiscal Plan, along with new polling data on the budget crisis. In addition, we will be joined by Portia Babcock (ConocoPhilips) and Phil Cochrane (BP) who will share how the current oil prices will impact their giving this year.
Participation is open to any organization, collective or individual committed to advancing the practice of philanthropy in the region. Membership in Philanthropy Northwest is not required.
PLEASE NOTE THIS EVENT IS 3:30 to 5 p.m. Alaska time.
