Grants ranging from $5,000 to $20,000 to Alaska Native led nonprofit organizations, tribes, schools, faith-based organizations, and local government agencies for social justice efforts. Applicants are requested to contact the funding source before submitting an application. Funding is intended to increase access to education and traditional resources, and to address over-representation in the prison system and under-representation in the political process.
The Alaska Community Foundation’s goals for the Alaska Native Social Justice Fund grant cycle are to support strategic collaborations that prioritize leadership development and allow Alaska Native communities to use their own voices to identify and address the social justice issues that are the most important to their communities.
To be considered for funding, proposals must support Alaska Native led efforts that are collaborative in nature, committed to leadership development, and actively address systemic social justice issues in Alaska Native communities.
Eligible Types of Support:
- Program Expansion or Creation - Supports specific projects or programs that serve the Alaska Native community and are linked to an organization’s primary mission.
- General Operational Support- Supports operations of organizations and programs directly addressing social justice issues affecting Alaska Natives. Organizations must demonstrate that general operating support is sustainable beyond the period for requested funds.
Additionally, ACF is highly interested in innovative programs and collaborative efforts that address systemic change related to social justice issues within their communities and champion leadership development. Lower priority is given to requests to pay for staff positions, and duplication of existing services. Entities working on social justice issues pertaining to criminal justice, increased Alaska Native voice, tribal courts, education, suicide, child welfare, and subsistence are encouraged to apply.
