Grant Description
Grants of up to $3,500 to Alaska nonprofit organizations, schools, tribal entities, and faith-based organizations for projects and programs that benefit residents in eligible communities. Projects may fall into the following focus areas: arts and culture, community development, health and wellness, the great outdoors, and education. Eligible projects are those that benefit residents in the Chilkat Valley area. Preference will be given to applications that have the potential to impact a broad range of Chilkat Valley area residents.

Applications are being considered in three (3) grant categories:

  1. Operating Support Grants may be awarded to sustainable organizations in amounts not to exceed 20% of the local organization’s secured cash annual budget.
  2. New Program and Special Project Grants may be awarded for programs and projects that are not undertaken on an annual basis.
  3. Capital Grants (i.e. grants for construction, remodel, renovation, technology, furniture, equipment, etc.) Capital Grant applicants will receive extra scoring points if they have applied for any other grant, such as a Rasmuson Foundation Grant for the proposed project, prior to applying to CVCF.


Additional Eligibility Criteria
The Chilkat Valley Community Foundation (CVCF), an Affiliate of The Alaska Community Foundation (ACF), seeks applications from qualified, tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organizations (or equivalents, such as: Tribal entities, schools, and faith-based organizations) that support charitable organizations and programs in the Chilkat Valley area.

Exceptions: In selected cases, projects undertaken by organizations that normally fall outside the guidelines, below, 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.

Fiscal Sponsorship: Ineligible organizations may be able to receive funding for projects if they seek support from a qualified organization that is willing to provide fiscal sponsorship.

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), and any proposals which discriminate as to race, gender, marital status, sexual orientation, age, disability, creed, or ethnicity.
