OUR
COMMUNITY
AT WORK

Directors & Candace Winkler, President & CEO.
Stories create community, build society and define our shared culture. Our stories describe who we
are and explain where we have come from. The stories we know about philanthropic giving are many
and varied. They are stories of a volunteer who paints sets for a local theater production and makes a
financial gift every year; stories of a child who asks for cans of soup to give to a food bank instead of
presents for his birthday; stories of a neighbor who hunts and shares his moose harvest with families
in need; and, stories of community members who bequest their entire estates to the communities
they love. As Alaskans, we have many of these stories … stories of impact, of community and of
giving back; however, too often they are not shared.
In this report, we reflect on ACF’s 18 year history and
realize that the story of ACF parallels that of Alaska’s greater
philanthropic landscape. Our story is of an organization that
originated as a shared dream and has become an efficient
and impactful tool for all Alaskans. In the early years our
growth was slow, as individuals were unfamiliar with the
power of community philanthropy and the community
foundation structure. As Alaskans recognize the power of
philanthropy to impact our statewide community, ACF has
experienced dramatic growth. We are humbled by the level
of comfort and trust that implies.
Our work continues as we began 18 years ago, innovatively
finding ways to make philanthropy easy, cost-effective and
impactful. Whether it is expanding our Affiliate program to
include more local foundations in our statewide platform or
creating the Philanthropy Hub, ACF is working continually to
cultivate, celebrate and sustain philanthropy of all forms.
We can’t do it without you, so thank you for making this
year an incredible one. The stories in the report are as much
yours as they are ours.
Collectively, we are writing the story of a stronger Alaska.
We will also share some stories of the past year in this
report. From moving sewer lines off of the beach in Naknek,
to supporting the Covenant House building project in
Anchorage, ACF strengthens communities. By the end
of 2012, ACF had grown to over $60 million in assets,
representing 297 different charitable funds. During the
year, we distributed approximately $6 million in grants to
organizations and tribes, impacting more than 45 different
communities throughout the state. These dollars represent
the philanthropic activity of hundreds of Alaskans like you,
but they only represent a part of our story.

:: Our Community At Work :: The Alaska Community Foundation 2012 Annual Report ::
We have warehoused, donated and
installed office furniture to over 30
nonprofits in Alaska. I announced
last year that I was too old to keep
schlepping furniture around and that
if we were really smart we would just
connect a big furniture donor to a
big nonprofit that needs it and stay
out of the middle. The ConocoPhillips
– The Alaska Community Foundation
deal was the largest one we have ever
“done” and all we did was make a
phone call. You can leverage many
things within a community besides
money ...
– Robin Smith & Eric McCallum
THE PHILANTHROPY HUB// In December of 2012, through the
support of generous donors, The Alaska Community Foundation
took a bold step toward collaborative philanthropy and formed The
Philanthropy Hub at The Alaska Community Foundation.
The Philanthropy Hub offers joint office space for community-minded
Alaskan organizations to co-locate and share services, including an
IT platform, office management and administrative support. Most
importantly, The Philanthropy Hub provides daily opportunities for
collaboration across multiple organizations with similar charitable
missions.
The Alaska Community Foundation is excited to be working with
our Philanthropy Hub Partners, building healthy communities and
growing philanthropy across Alaska. Please come visit us at 3201 C
Street, Suite #110.
“We joined the Philanthropy Hub to be part of growing philanthropy
in Alaska. Though we focus on parks and trails with our investments,
the essence of our work is community building. We came to the right
shared space – working with other nonprofit and community leaders
sparks a natural synergy for creating a culture of giving.”
– Beth Nordlund, Executive Director, Anchorage Park Foundation

ABOUT US
The Alaska Community Foundation Thanks to you — the
culture of philanthropy is growing in Alaska!
In 2012, over 930 individual donors from across Alaska directed
their charitable dollars to The Alaska Community Foundation
to strengthen community and create lasting philanthropic
legacies. Visionary Alaskans established 14 new charitable
funds with The Alaska Community Foundation to support their
unique philanthropic goals.
“I celebrate philanthropy
each year when filing
my PFD application. As
I read through the list
of eligible Pick.Click.
Give. organizations, I’m
proud to be supporting
the work of the
visionary, creative, and
compassionate people
who help make Alaska
such a wonderful place
to live.”
– Diane Kaplan, Rasmuson
Foundation, President & CEO
Also this year, ACF became home to
the popular Pick.Click.Give. program.
The Alaska Community Foundation
employs the Pick.Click.Give. Program
Manager who coordinates the
statewide marketing campaign and
serves as a resource for the nearly
500 nonprofits that participate in
the program. The Alaska Community
Foundation is also taking a leading role in developing a
sustainability plan for Pick.Click.Give. by working with nonprofit
partners to identify ways to ensure the program’s success in the
years to come.
Following a rigorous review process, The Alaska Community
Foundation recertified in 2012 for National Standards for U.S.
Community Foundations through the Council on Foundations.
This assures donors that we continue to meet the nation’s highest
philanthropic standards for integrity and accountability.
Confirmed in Compliance with National
Standards for U.S. Community Foundations

“So many good things are
happening through our Affiliate
that it is hard to narrow it down!
Last year, we supported the
expansion of our Meals on Wheels
program for home-bound seniors.
We also supported the transit
AFFILIATE FUNDS
system that helps get people to
our local health clinic. The list
goes on … schools, libraries,
food banks! I love supporting
the nonprofits that make the
Upper Susitna Valley a healthier,
more vibrant community!
Our endowment embraces
possibilities for the future and
we are all pleased to see it grow.”

Community Asset Building Initiative As you travel across Alaska, one
thing is evident: Alaskans love their hometowns. Whether you grew up in
Tanana, Togiak or Tenakee Springs — Alaskans
develop a strong sense of identity that is firmly
rooted in place. A place called your hometown.
Through the Community Asset Building Initiative
(CABI), we support Alaskans who are giving
back to their hometown and creating their legacy for future generations.
Launched in 2008 with generous support from the Rasmuson Foundation, we
embarked on an effort to create permanently-endowed, geographic Affiliate
funds in five communities across Alaska. In late 2012, CABI expanded to
four additional Affiliate communities. Under the leadership of dedicated
volunteers, our nine Affiliates are pioneering new territory in home-grown
philanthropy across Alaska.
Each Affiliate is distinct and unique — drawing inspiration from their local
culture, values and vision. The Affiliate Advisory Boards — guided by their
keen understanding of their community — are the true “champions” for local
philanthropy. They connect with their friends and neighbors to support the
local causes that matter the most in their individual communities.
Affiliates focus their efforts to cultivate community-based philanthropy;
we provide technical, legal and administrative support.
Together, we build strong and resilient hometowns for future generations
of Alaskans.
Greater Sitka Legacy Fund
▪ Our mission is to support local resiliency
and self-reliance, now and in the future. We
are committed to keeping our community a
vital, progressive and healthy place where
people can live, work, raise families and
retire.
Ketchikan Community Foundation
▪ Our vision for the Ketchikan community
includes a diversified local economy that
provides family-supported employment,
access to affordable housing and healthcare,
“The community foundation
is a way of reinventing
our future. We involve a
broad representation of the
community in decisionmaking about the possibilities
for Petersburg. The creativity
it fosters is exciting! How
inspirational it is to see
friends and neighbors
invest time and energy in
where we are headed, and
how gratifying to know
the Petersburg Community
Foundation has a hand in
facilitating those changes in
our community.”
– Cindi Lagoudakis, Petersburg Community
Foundation, Advisory Board
a vibrant arts community and multiple
recreational and quality educational
opportunities.
Kodiak Community Foundation
▪ Our vision is fully engaged island
communities giving generously, gaining
self-reliance and growing support for causes
that matter.
Thanks to the Rasmuson Foundation for their
generous support for the CABI program.

ACF funding made it possible for
our Board to create a strategic plan
and develop greater buy-in to our
agency’s mission.

Executive Director
STRENGTHENING ORGANIZATIONS// Increasing the ability of nonprofits
and tribes around the state to better achieve their mission is a vital
step toward realizing our vision of Alaskans supporting Alaskans to
create a sustainable quality of life. The Alaska Community Foundation,
with support of the Rasmuson Foundation, launched a pilot program
for capacity building grants in the summer of 2012. Building upon our
experience in providing capacity building grants to rural organizations
in the Upper Yukon, Strengthening Organizations provides access to
small grants for local capacity building across Alaska.
With 64 eligible applications requesting over $361,000 during the pilot
stage of the program, ACF awarded grants to 23 organizations, primarily
in rural areas. The overwhelming response demonstrated the need for
this program, so we are delighted to expand the program and continue
to support Alaska’s nonprofits and tribes.
“Like many nonprofits, we were jumping from project to project. The
Strengthening Organizations grant allowed us to take a step back and
assess the bigger picture. By bringing together our board, we were able to
create a business plan and chart a course for years to come.”
– Steve Cleary, Executive Director, Alaska Trails
“We are very, very pleased. This means a lot to us, and EPC’s future. Please
thank everyone for us! AwA’ahdah – thank you.”
– Carol Hoover, Eyak Preservation Council

Field of Interest Funds When you target your gift to address an
interest or specific charitable cause such as health care, the arts or
veterans, you create a fund that remains flexible enough to address
an issue in your area of interest, even as organizations and/or
strategies addressing the issue change over time.
FIELD OF INTEREST
& UNRESTRICTED
ENDOWMENT FUNDS
Unrestricted Endowment Funds
Community needs change over
time. The issues and opportunities
Alaskans are facing today may be
different for the next generation.
An unrestricted fund provides the
maximum flexibility to respond
quickly and effectively to the everchanging needs of Alaska.
“The power of community
is a part of The Alaska
Community Foundation’s
DNA. Through ACF,
Alaskans guide the
future of our state with
funds that are protected
from outside influence
or control. The Alaska
Community Foundation
is a way for Alaskans to
demonstrate their love
for Alaska: its people,
villages, towns, cities
and regions. It’s where
Alaskans invest in
Alaska’s future.”

“My interest in The Alaska Community
Foundation developed through my interactions
with the Petersburg Community Foundation.
I felt Petersburg Public Library was the best
recipient for a charitable fund, because it offers
learning and cultural programs year round
to everyone in our community. I wanted to
provide long-term financial support for its art
education/enrichment programs, and the best
option for me was to work with The Alaska
Community Foundation.“

CRIB SWAP// Let’s make sure Alaska’s babies are sleeping safely
Every day, over 4,000 infants and toddlers go to sleep in child care
programs across Alaska, but are the cribs they sleep in safe? In most
cases, the answer is no. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission
(CPSC) previously warned parents and child care centers alike as to the
dangers of drop-side cribs. In the past 9 years, CPSC reports 32 child
fatalities as a result of these cribs: “In the last five years, CPSC has
announced 11 recalls involving more than 7 million drop-side cribs
due to suffocation and strangulation hazards created by the drop side.
CPSC staff is actively investigating several other crib manufacturers for
potential drop-side hazards as part of a larger effort by the agency to rid
the marketplace and homes of unsafe cribs.”
As a result, new federal standards on crib safety took effect at the end
of 2012 requiring all child care centers and programs to replace these
old cribs with new, safe cribs.
In Alaska, there were hundreds of child care programs currently using
drop side cribs. Replacing cribs cost these facilities time and money
and in many rural communities the newer cribs are not even directly
available. The Alaska Community Foundation partnered with thread to
replace existing cribs in licensed child care homes and centers across
Alaska with new cribs that meet the required safety standards.
“I especially like how the Petersburg Community Foundation
serves as an umbrella organization to help all nonprofits in
town. The individuals running these important and necessary
groups are so busy improving Petersburg – it’s nice to give
back to them sort of collectively through a community
foundation’s ability to help them with education and grants.”
– Cynthia Wallesz, Petersburg Community Foundation, Advisory Board

When it came time to do my estate
planning I realized there is no better
place to leave a legacy to the state
I love so dearly; a place where
anyone can have an impact on their
causes and community. I love the
idea of joining with others to affect
positive change. By giving through
ACF, I am connected to and support
communities throughout the state of
Alaska and through my Legacy fund
that support will continue forever!
How great is that?
– Babbie Jacobs,
Legacy Society for Alaska member
LEGACY SOCIETY// The Alaska Community Foundation is proud to honor and
recognize pioneering Alaskans who have included ACF in their planned giving.
These donors have created their charitable legacy and are the members of
the Legacy Society of Alaska. By making an outright or planned gift through
a bequest or a beneficiary designation of life insurance or a retirement plan,
the members have shared their deep commitment to Alaska.

Bernie’s commitment to our
community goes well beyond
his service as a Board Member
of Bean’s Café. His long time
participation in a number of
other nonprofit boards and
advisory committees highlights
the magnitude his technical
expertise and practical approach
to nonprofit financial issues
has had in Alaska. His deepseated commitment to making
our community a better place
affirms his understanding that
by helping those in need, we in
turn help each other.
– Leslie Ellis, Credit Union 1,
President & CEO
BERNIE WASHINGTON// The oil industry brought Bernie to Alaska. His
first winter, he experienced what he calls “true homelessness”– a man
had froze to death during one frigid night. In his small hometown of
Beaver Falls, Pennsylvania, things like that just didn’t happen. For
Bernie, the character of a society is based on how those most in need
are treated. His aspiration has always been to leave the world a much
better place and that tragic night catapulted him onto a path that
would impact Alaska forever.
Thirty-five years later, Bernie is well known in the Alaskan nonprofit
arena. A dedicated community advocate, Bernie served for a year as the
president of the United Way of Anchorage Board of Directors and also
spent the last 30 years on the United Way of Anchorage Allocations Panel
(Investment Committee). He helped start the Foraker Group, serving on
their Board of Directors, in addition to Bean’s Café Board of Directors.
His significant role in establishing The Alaska Community Foundation
and Shiloh Community Housing, Inc. highlights the profound impact
Bernie’s contributions of knowledge and know-how have had on the
causes he cares about most. His financial expertise and commitment to
service is remarkable.
As a role model and leader in philanthropy, we thank you Bernie for your
time and talent.

FINANCIAL POSITION
Our Investment Philosophy: The goals of ACF are to preserve and enhance the
real value of charitable assets over time, to exist in perpetuity and to provide for
grantmaking in perpetuity. To accomplish these goals, we maintain a diversified
portfolio with an acceptable level of risk. The overriding investment objective for
our endowed funds is to maintain purchasing power by adherence to investment
discipline, because we believe grants for tomorrow are as important as grants
made today.
