Alaska Airlines Foundation

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

A limited number of cash grants ranging on average from $5,000 to $15,000 are given to 501(c)(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 add value to a community.

Funding Guidelines

  • individuals or private businesses requesting loans or grants

  • endowments
  • religious organizations (if for sacramental purposes)
  • pageants
  • capital projects
  • programs with a multi-year commitment or requests for automatic renewal
  • fund general operating expenses
  • publicly or privately funded educational institutions. Most schools (public or private) are eligible for funding through Alaska's Employee Gift Matching Program
  • organizations whose prime purpose is to influence legislation
