ANCHORAGE – Applications are now available online for the fall 2012 grant cycle of the Pebble Fund, a charitable
fund established by the Pebble Partnership at The Alaska Community. Non-profit organizations operating in the
Bristol Bay region are encouraged to apply. Applications are due September 3, 2012 and the online application

The Pebble Fund provides grants for four primary project types: renewable resources/fish, energy, education, and

impactful grant making, choosing projects that directly benefit Southwest Alaska regional communities. The
mission of the fund is “To promote and enhance sustainable and healthy communities and renewable resources in
the Bristol Bay region.”
Projects funded by the Spring 2012 grant cycle include: the purchase of a safe and reliable fuel truck, a
presentation on youth homelessness and human trafficking to students in the Lake and Peninsula Borough School
