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 other grantmakers who fund in Alaska. The group meets quarterly to share information, learn from each other and get to know their peers in the Alaska funding community.
Participation is open to organized philanthropy and individuals who are currently making grants in Alaska. This includes corporate investors, private foundations, community foundations, nonprofit grantmaking organizations, government grantmakers and consultants currently working on their behalf. You do not need to be a Philanthropy Northwest member to participcate. If you are unsure about your eligibility, please contact Lyn Hunter.
The group is led by Steering Committee co-chairs Michelle Brown of United Way of Anchorage, Elizabeth Ripley from Mat-Su Health Foundation, Michelle DeWitt with Bethel Community Services and Philanthropy Northwest's board of directors.
Contact Lyn Hunter, senior program manager, for more information and to be added to the mailing list for announcements.
