Nonprofit Eligibility

Established nonprofit organizations serving the Interior of Alaska are eligible for nomination. No national nonprofits will be considered unless they have a local chapter that provides direct services to local community members (such as the Red Cross). The purpose is for the contribution to stay 100% in the community.

Nonprofits agree to provide individual tax receipts and to refrain from using donor information for future solicitations or for publicity purposes unless specified otherwise by the member. Nonprofits also agree to send a representative to the following meeting to describe the impact that the donation had.

Selected nonprofits are not eligible for resubmission for three years. Nonprofits not selected are eligible for renomination immediately.
