Our Donors

Donor support is critical to the success of Foraker and the sector. We are grateful to each of you, and thank you for your generosity.

Vision Partners

We call our donors “Vision Partners” because they embrace the vision of a strong Alaska nonprofit sector – one that partners effectively across the state to deliver programs and services to Alaskans.

Vision Partners make Foraker’s work come alive. Successful nonprofits – those that fully serve their communities and bolster our economy – must be strong, stable, and ready to innovate and collaborate. Foraker offers Alaska nonprofits and tribes the knowledge, skills, and experiences they need to thrive. Our Vision Partners make it all possible with their support of these elements of Foraker’s mission.

Momentum Circle Members

The Momentum Circle honors former Foraker board members and staff who recognize the value of a strong and healthy nonprofit sector in Alaska through their gifts to Foraker.

As a member of the Momentum Circle, donors are invited to special briefings and events as well as opportunities to connect with our current board and staff on sector issues. We also offer attendance at community classes at no charge. Donors will receive the other benefits of our Vision Partners depending on the level of investment.

Leadership Summit Sponsors

Every two years, we bring together national and international leaders in the sector who are transforming the way we work through their innovative thinking and practical experience. Our sponsors make this premiere event possible.

Whether participants come as a board member, staff, volunteer, or donor, they experience two days of learning, sharing, reflecting, and networking. That’s the promise of our Leadership Summit.
