The Pebble Partnership created The Pebble Fund to support a broad range of community-led initiatives that contribute to a sustainable economic future for the region and enhance the health of Bristol Bay fisheries. So far, The Pebble Fund has awarded nearly $1.6 million in support for over 50 projects in the Bristol Bay Region. A complete list of funded projects is available on the ACF website.
The Fund is administered and managed by The Alaska Community Foundation. Since 1996, the Alaska Community Foundation has built successful partnerships with donors and nonprofits to improve the quality of life for Alaskans. ACF facilitates gifts from thousands of generous individuals and families, and last year these donors awarded grants of more than $10 million to a broad range of area nonprofit organizations. ACF offers a range of charitable funds, allowing donors to advance a cause, support an individual organization, or provide flexible support for community needs.
