Founded in 2006, the Pre-Development Program was formed as a collaboration of the Alaska Mental Health Trust Authority, Denali Commission, Mat-Su Health Foundation, and Rasmuson Foundation. Foraker has served as the Pre-D coordinator and provided educational resources, along with experts who helped organizations develop their projects.
The intent of Pre-D is to ensure sustainable projects that are well conceived and are the right size and scope to meet the organization’s mission for years to come.
We have been proud to work with our funding partners to serve more than 100 organizations who have been part of the program. These organizations – including nonprofits, borough governments, and tribes – have gone on to successfully complete a variety of projects across the state including libraries, museums, senior housing, homeless shelters, health clinics, community centers, and domestic abuse shelters.
Currently Pre-D is not accepting new project applications.
Foraker remains committed to offering resources and answering questions you may have about preparing for your capital project. Contact us for a consultation or to learn about our Pre-D courses.
If your organization is considering a capital project, we encourage you to review a handbook we developed – Preparing to Fund Your Capital Project in Alaska and Beyond – which is available at no charge.
We thank our funding partners and all the organizations that have worked with us to make Pre-D a successful program.
