Term of Contract:

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Sitka Legacy Foundation (SLF), an Affiliate of The Alaska Community Foundation (ACF), seeks applications from qualified entities, including tax exempt 501(c)(3) organizations, tribal entities, local government, schools, and faith-based organizations that support community projects in Sitka and on Baranof Island.

Ineligible organizations or activities: Individuals, for-profit, 501(c)(4), 501(c)(6), and non-Alaska based organizations, private or family foundations, state and federal government agencies, and ad hoc groups without a tax exempt legal status are not eligible for competitive grants. Applications for religious indoctrination or other religious activities, endowment building, deficit financing, fundraising, lobbying, electioneering, or activities of political nature will not be considered, nor will proposals for ads, sponsorships, or special events (e.g. fundraisers). SLF does not fund travel outside of Sitka. Projects that discriminate on the basis of race, gender, marital status, sexual orientation or gender expression, age, disability, creed, or ethnicity are ineligible for funding.

Exceptions: In selected cases, projects undertaken by organizations that normally fall outside the above guidelines may be able to receive funding. Examples include faith-based organizations whose proposal impacts the broader community, and units of government whose proposal extends beyond the traditional governmental functions that impact the broader community. Projects of tribal organizations that legally offer Native preference in providing services are eligible.

Fiscal Sponsorship: Ineligible organizations may be able to receive funding for projects if they seek support from a qualified organization who is willing to provide fiscal sponsorship. Fiscal sponsors must agree to take legal and fiscal responsibility for accepting grant funds from SLF on behalf of the ineligible organization. A letter from the fiscal sponsor must be submitted with the application for the project to be considered.
