Our Impact Children and Education

The children of today are the leaders of tomorrow.

At The Alaska Community Foundation, we envision a future where every Alaskan child thrives an has a bright future – full of promise and hope.

In 2012, we partnered with thread to launch the Alaska Crib Swap, a fundraising program to replace existing unsafe cribs in child care homes and centers in rural Alaska. All individual donations to the Alaska Crib Swap were matched by ACF dollar for dollar.

The Anchorage Schools Foundation, a component fund of The Alaska Community Foundation, supports innovative classroom projects that take learning “out of the box”. By stimulating new and creative approaches to education East High School students are able to build Solar Suitcases and school children at Creekside Park Elementary have the opportunity to learn music by strumming on ukuleles.

From the Alaska Winter Olympians Fund to the $1 million dollar contribution to the Covenant House, ACF leads in making a lasting impact on our future.
