The facility serves as a safe space for women and children impacted by domestic violence, sexual assault, and other crimes.
“The Alaska USA Foundation is proud of the impact we can have on local nonprofit organizations in our communities,” says Dan McCue, Executive Director of the Alaska USA Foundation.
The donation provides increased bandwidth for Alaska’s only tribal college and will significantly expand Iḷisaġvik’s internet speed and capacity.
The funds will be divided in Alaska, Arizona, California, and Washington so Operation Homefront can continue to be the provider of choice for military families needing short-term relief, long-term resiliency and recurring family support programs and services.
Along with the office space, Alaska USA presented United Way of Anchorage with $42,000. The funds were comprised of employee donations and a generous corporate match contribution.
The investments will continue focus on economic access and equity for underserved communities and populations.
Alaska USA has donated $20,000 to Special Olympics Alaska.
The contribution includes $10,000 in in-kind research services, which SHI routinely uses to measure and evaluate its programs.
The donation will fund, in part, the construction of a new, interactive discovery pools exhibit called the Rocky Coast Touch Pool.
“The past year has been difficult for so many of our nonprofit partners and we are so pleased to have an opportunity to provide support,” says Dan McCue, executive director, Alaska USA Foundation.
