Recovery Resources

Nonprofit Resources

Donation Resources

Alaska Community Foundation Fund: Alaska Disaster Recovery Fund. A coalition of funders and service providers have come together around a single fund, the Alaska Disaster Recovery Fund, to be managed by The Alaska Community Foundation. The fund’s purpose is to support the ongoing recovery efforts from the November 30, 2018 earthquake in Southcentral Alaska. The goal of this fund is to allow donors to support recovery efforts for both short-term emergency response and long-term recovery.

The Mat-Su Health Foundation (MSHF) is offering Target Wellness earthquake recovery grants to assist qualified Mat-Su nonprofits affected by the November 30 earthquake. These special grants will receive expedited handling, and the maximum amount will be increased to $50,000 from the normal $15,000 threshold for Target Wellness grants. Applications are being accepted online at healthymatsu.org.

Foraker is conducting a survey of earthquake impact to share with funders and volunteers. Fill out the survey here. We are passing along this information to funders.
