Alaska Conservation Foundation is proud to be the primary funder of an innovative network — the Sustainable Southeast Partnership

The Sustainable Southeast Partnership builds trust and finds common ground among unlikely allies to achieve cultural, ecological and economic prosperity for the region. Alaska Conservation Foundation’s long-time partners Sitka Conservation SocietyRenewable Energy Alaska Project and The Nature Conservancy are now working together in meaningful ways with Alaska Native corporations, regional economic development organizations and local municipalities that have historically been focused more heavily on resource extraction.

This unique partnership is helping lead the way to Alaska’s future by figuring out how conserving and protecting the natural environment happens alongside community development and healthy local economies. We believe this innovative and balanced approach represents the next phase of the environmental movement and may eventually be replicated across the globe in communities facing similar challenges.

Funds dispersed through this grant program are only directed to the Sustainable Southeast Partnership participating organizations.
