As Alaska’s nonprofit state association, we connect with policy makers, businesses, and other nonprofits to highlight the positive impacts nonprofits have on our state. Positioning the sector as a credible voice is a role we take seriously.

Each year a joint committee representing Foraker’s Governance and Operations Boards analyzes issues affecting the Alaska nonprofit sector. In addition to ensuring that we are nonpartisan, Foraker’s Public Policy Committee uses four criteria (see How does Foraker decide which issues to focus on?) to analyze issues and recommend annual priorities.

We are excited to work together on reaching our 2023 advocacy objectives. We invite you to join us in advocating for the following issues that have an impact on your mission and the sector – you can learn more about each of these objectives here.

  • Position nonprofits to navigate federal relief and infrastructure funding
  • Preserve nonprofit tax exemptions
  • Advance equity-based public policy
  • Promote improvements to compliance requirements that adversely impact nonprofits
  • Position nonprofits to have a voice in creating a stable economy
  • Advance an affordable health insurance option for nonprofits
  • Support prompt payment legislation or regulatory change
  • Support nonprofits as they mobilize communities in accessing high-speed broadband
  • Highlight sub-sector issues that are essential to our economy
