Providence Alaska Foundation

Providence Alaska Foundation named Cynthia Libby as its new President. She also takes on the title of Chief Philanthropy Officer of the fundraising arm of Providence Health & Services Alaska.

In this new role, Libby leads the foundation’s operations and partners with Providence leaders to support philanthropic efforts in the community. She is the successor to Suzanne Carte-Cocroft, who announced in August that she is moving to the Lower 48, closer to family.

Libby has been with Providence for nearly ten years, most recently as region director of operations for Providence Alaska Foundation. She is credited with helping to raise tens of millions of dollars, including philanthropic investments for the construction of Alaska CARES, a facility that supports children who are victims of abuse.

“Cynthia is a person of Providence through and through,” says Providence Alaska CEO Ella Goss. “She is deeply committed to our mission of serving the poor and vulnerable and delivers on that commitment in all her work.”
