Sitka Legacy Foundation (SLF), an Affiliate of The Alaska Community Foundation (ACF), seeks applications from qualified, tax exempt 501(c)(3) organizations (or equivalents, including Tribal entities, local governments, schools, and faith-based organizations) that support charitable organizations and programs in Sitka and on Baranof Island.
Grants may support a broad range of community needs. Priority will be given to organizations focused on providing services to children and youth. Organizational operating expenses are an eligible use of grant funds. We anticipate that most grant awards will be between $2,000 and $10,000 and will not exceed $10,000.
Grantees must submit an online grant agreement signifying acceptance of the terms and conditions of the grant. Grant projects must generally be completed within one year of the award, and a final grant report must be submitted online by the due date to maintain future eligibility for grants from SLF and ACF. Any overdue reports or other follow-ups for previous grant awards from ACF and SLF must also be submitted using the online grant system prior to the deadline for the current application to be considered.
Grant applications must be submitted online by 5:00 PM AKST on Monday, September 25, 2023. Applications submitted after the deadline will not be considered for funding. Any overdue grant reports or other follow-ups for previous grant awards from SLF and ACF must also be submitted using the online grant system prior to the deadline for the current application to be considered.
Please review 2023 SLF’s Competitive Grant Guidelines to determine your eligibility before applying.
