A statewide focus on conservation opportunities

Alaska Conservation Foundation is the only foundation in the country solely dedicated to protecting Alaska’s natural environment and the diverse cultures and ways of life it sustains. We keep a close eye on statewide conservation threats and work to protect the health, resilience, and connectivity of ecosystems and communities. We support grassroots advocacy, lead climate change adaptation efforts, and strengthen Alaska’s conservation movement. By monitoring complex economic, political,  and cultural landscapes across the state, we identify opportunities and prioritize where to direct funds to achieve meaningful conservation success.

Alaska Conservation Foundation identifies opportunities and prioritizes where to direct funds to achieve meaningful conservation success.

Since 1980, Alaska Conservation Foundation has awarded more than $59 million in grants, sustaining a network of organizations working to craft solutions to Alaska’s most pressing conservation challenges. As a result, the Alaska conservation movement continues to build strong communities and sustainable economies supported by a healthy environment.

Our leadership and work are made possible by the generosity of individual donors, foundations, and businesses from around the country who share our passion for Alaska.
