Working together to create a vibrant future.

As a trusted and experienced partner within Alaska, we share our knowledge and extensive local network. In close collaboration, we partner with foundations to extend their impact and turn ideas into sustainable initiatives.

Solutions that advance your mission.

Alaska Venture Fund is uniquely positioned to support foundations looking to do work in Alaska. By working in partnership with communities, we can help design and develop culturally appropriate, scalable initiatives that will advance your mission.

Strategic Portfolio Development


Our team’s longstanding experience with project development and grantmaking within Alaska makes us uniquely qualified to help donors refine their strategic portfolio within the state. Combining in-depth knowledge of local opportunities and issues with tailored advisory services, we work together with donors to create a portfolio that directly reflects their interests and mission, and represents the greatest efficiency and impact.

Experiential Learning Opportunities


For foundations, we provide learning opportunities for program officers and donors looking to gain a deeper understanding of the work being done in Alaska. Curated trips, designed around foundation needs and interests offer first-hand insights into the issues and opportunities on the ground and a chance to meet local leaders doing transformational work within their communities.

Project Development


We can help turn an idea into an initiative by providing connections to on-the-ground talent, establishing trusted relationships with communities, building local capacity, and sharing local knowledge and insight, as well as the strategic and back-office support necessary.

Grantmaking


With extensive experience making and managing grants within Alaska, we work alongside foundations providing a tailored level of support and collaboration to ensure your foundation’s investment is impactful over the long-term.

Collaborative Platform


Multiple funders, one goal—to see Alaska succeed. Our collaborative platform allows multiple funders to coordinate capacity and resources to take on systemic social change. Funding collaboratively through Alaska Venture Fund creates operational efficiencies and allows for greater impact.
