A donor-advised fund of the Juneau Community Foundation, the Douglas-Dornan Foundation Fund was established in honor of Brian Douglas and Wythe Dornan, who moved to Juneau in late 1989 to pursue their dreams. During the few years they lived there, they were actively involved in the community. In addition to volunteer work at Glory Hole and for various environmental causes, the young couple acted as foster parents for several Native Alaskan children. Both Brian and Wythe suffered untimely deaths in a car accident at the age of 27 in 1993.
Today, the fund supports projects dedicated to enhancing the health, education, and welfare of residents of southeastern Alaska. Through the fund, grants will be awarded to organizations working to support and assist children, youth, elders, and/or special needs groups in the region. Grants will not be awarded to individuals seeking college tuition or money to be used for personal development.
Most grants awarded through the fund will range between $200 and $4,000, and will not exceed $5,000.
Completed applications must be mailed to Paul D. Douglas, Advisor, 3014 Foster Avenue, Juneau, Alaska 99801 and be postmarked no later than June 1, 2019.
See the Juneau Community Foundation website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
