Alaska Airlines Foundation

We are committed to philanthropic giving and, with that goal in mind, created the Alaska Airlines Foundation.

A small number of cash grants ranging on average from $5,000 to $15,000 are given to 501(3) non-profit organizations classified as public charities in Alaska, Hawaii, and Washington State. These grants should focus on educational efforts that address a unique need or value to a community.
