Alaska Conservation Foundation (ACF), in partnership with an Alaska Native Steering Committee, launched the Alaska Native Fund in 2011 to advance Alaska Native priorities for protecting our land and sustaining our ways of life. The fund provides an Indigenous framework for impacting critical environmental issues while promoting innovative strategies to strengthen the capacity of Alaska Native organizations and communities. The goals of the Fund are to:
1) Leverage more foundation and donor resources for Alaska Native organizations;
2) Support Alaska Native strategies and solutions on environmental issues; and
3) Build relationships that will grow and strengthen the conservation movement in Alaska.
The Alaska Native Fund will provide annual grants to qualifying Alaska Native nonprofit organizations and individuals. In addition, through the fund we will host bi-annual Gatherings of Alaska Native organizations and foundations to address emerging environmental issues and develop relationships.
