As an Affiliate of The Alaska Community Foundation, Sitka Legacy Foundation’s goal is to support projects that enhance the quality of life for Sitka residents, addressing immediate needs while working toward long-term improvements. We are continually listening and learning about what is important to you.

We use proceeds from our growing permanent endowment to award grants that fund charitable organizations and programs in the Sitka area. Grants may support a broad range of community needs, including but not limited to health and wellness, education, the great outdoors, arts and culture, and community development. We seek projects that have the potential to impact a broad range of residents and show collaboration with other organizations.

Please feel free to contact any member of the Advisory Board if you have a project you hope we’ll support.

Competitive Grants Cycle

Our 2019 competitive grants cycle will be open from August 19 through September 27 at 5:00pm; priorities and guidelines for this year will be updated by mid-July. We are not currently accepting applications.
