Alaska’s nonprofit sector is not just about charitable giving, it’s also one of the state’s largest employers. While many nonprofits operate behind the scenes, Alaska Business is committed to providing coverage of these important organizations as they advance their respective missions. This sector includes entities such as Pick.Click.Give., United Way, the Foraker Group, Salvation Army, Alaska Federation of Natives, and the Alaska Support Industry Alliance, to name just a few.

The Corporate 100

April 2021

Alaska Business has been celebrating the corporations that have a significant impact on Alaska’s economy since 1993. At the time, the corporations weren’t ranked as the list didn’t have specific ranking criteria. Instead, the Alaska Business editorial team held long, detailed, and occasionally passionate discussions about which organizations around the state were providing jobs, owned or leased property, used local vendors, demonstrated a high level of community engagement, and in general enriched Alaska.
