"Our goal has always been to be a committed partner in the communities we know we are here because of you," said Diana Birkett Rakow, chair, e Alaska Airlines Foundation Board of Directors. "As we look out over the horizon, we will grow and expand the Foundation and work with partners throughout the West Coast and beyond to help inspire, empower and equip young people to connect to career opportunities and realize strong futures."
For 20 years the Alaska Airlines Foundation has supported communities with cash grants to nonprofits totalling over two-million dollars. As an independent 501c nonprofit organisation, the Alaska Airlines Foundation is focused on programmes that benefit young people in the communities served by Alaska Airlines.
The Alaska Airlines Foundation is in the process of updating its grant guidelines and in 2020, will expand the geographic reach of the Foundation by adding grant opportunities in California and Oregon.
