A Unique Leadership Model.

To create lasting, positive change in Alaska, we need to find new ways of working that prioritize consensus, equity, and trust. True to this approach, Alaska Venture Fund uses a co-leadership model, in which six Partners provide our organizational governance and take a shared role in decision making and direction-setting.

Opportunity: Alaska

We believe right now is Alaska’s moment to build a better future. Our approach is to lean into Alaska’s cultural heritage to find sustainable ideas and answers that look out for everyone’s wellbeing and ensure future generations have access to our unique ways of life.


We recognize that we work throughout the ancestral and unceded territories of the Indigenous Peoples of Alaska. Our office is located within Dena’ina ełnena, the traditional land of the Dena’ina Athabascan, but our work spans the entire state of Alaska. We acknowledge and honor the ancestral and present stewardship and place-based knowledge of the peoples of these territories and strive to learn from their example.
