The Juneau Community Foundation was created to promote philanthropy and effectively respond to the needs of our community to create a healthy, safe, and culturally rich environment.
The 2017 Juneau Hope Endowment Fund/City & Borough of Juneau Social Service Grants program is open. The Hope Endowment Fund was established in 2014 with the intent of supporting 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations and government agencies that provide programs and services in the Juneau community to address the following social issues: Homelessness, Hospice, Mental Health, Suicide Prevention, Substance Abuse and Relief for Victims of Violence. In 2015, CBJ social service funds were added to the grant making program. Learn more about the Hope Fund/CBJ Social Service Grant program, and other recent Foundation news.
One of the Juneau Community Foundation’s ongoing Special Projects is improvements to the Pipeline Skate Park at Jackie Renninger Park, in collaboration with the City and Borough of Juneau and groups like the Local Union 1281 Carpenters Union.
