The Rasmuson Foundation, whose mission is "to promote a better life for all Alaskans," has announced $7.6 million in grants and initiatives throughout the state.
This includes a five-year renewal of Pick.Click.Give. to bridge the gap between the program’s start-up and self-sufficiency. The $1.8 million award will support The Alaska Community Foundation in its delivery of statewide marketing and coordination of the program.
The foundation also elected two new board members: John A. "Jay" Gibbons IIII and Laura Emerson. Both are grandchildren of Elmer Rasmuson.
