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.
The companies join an outpouring of community support for the village from across the state, working to provide clean drinking water until a permanent solution is found.
The donation continues a strong partnership between the two organizations that began over a decade ago.
“We made a commitment to the people of the Yukon-Kuskokwim region to support communities with resources in their time of need, particularly when it comes to health and safety,” says Kristina Woolston, Donlin Gold’s external affairs manager.
GCI has committed $2 million in 2021 in direct donations, in-kind services, and products to Alaska organizations.
