The Alaska Funders Group (AFG) is a peer-to-peer group that facilitates making connections, sharing experiences and gathering together to form a learning network which maximizes philanthropic impact in our communities. AFG meets to create cooperative relationships, build capacity and explore the ways we can work together. Participation is open to any organization or collective committed to advancing the practice of philanthropy in Alaska. Organizations do not have to be a member of Philanthropy Northwest to participate in AFG.
Philanthropy Northwest connects grantmakers across Alaska through communications and programming created specifically for funders in the state. Philanthropy Northwest supports the Alaska Funders Group, a network for our members and nonmember grantmakers who fund in Alaska.
Funders can play a unique role in Collective Impact, an approach that uses long-term and cross-sector collaboration to mitigate complex issues such as health, education, homelessness, community safety and poverty.
