The Anchorage-based Rasmuson Foundation has announced grants totaling more than $6.6 million to fourteen nonprofit organizations in Alaska.
Grant recipients include Set Free Alaska, which was awarded $500,000 to complete facility renovations on an alcohol and drug treatment center in Wasilla; Hope Community Resources, which will receive $330,000 toward construction of a housing development in Sterling; the Perseverance Theatre, which will receive $450,000 to implement a strategic initiative for long-term sustainability, including professional-quality theater productions in both Anchorage and Juneau; and the Great Land Trust, which will receive $150,000 for land acquisitions and park development in Matanuska-Susitna Borough.
"Our goal is to support projects that will have a lasting impact on the communities they serve," said Rasmuson Foundation president and CEO Diane Kaplan. "In most cases, these nonprofits have worked to raise funds from local and regional sources, building stronger partnerships, and furthering their own sustainability."
