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.
