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.
2017 Hope Endowment/CBJ Social Service Grants. The Juneau Community Foundation has awarded $1.8M in grants to local nonprofit social service organizations to help Juneau’s most vulnerable residents. The grants support nonprofit service providers in these areas: homelessness, food security, addiction, domestic violence, suicide prevention, senior care, hospice, mental and physical health, education and income stability. In partnership with City & Borough of Juneau, Avista Corporation and United Way of Southeast Alaska, 23 local organizations are receiving grants. Learn more about this and other Foundation news.
Project Playground – Twin Lakes. After 2.5 years of planning, Project Playground was built as a labor of love by teams of volunteers during May 2007. Project Playground has since been maintained and improved by the Friends of the Playground, CBJ and SAIL. The April 24 fire that destroyed the playground sent a ripple of concern across our community and statewide. Fundraisers have been held by many entities and a new Steering Committee will help guide the rebuilding of Project Playground.

Amount raised: $161,000. Thank You Generous Business Donors!
