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.
Juneau’s Housing First Project receives $100,000 donation from the Stanley Reitman Foundation. The 32-unit facility will provide housing for Juneau’s chronically homeless population. The Reitman Foundation chose to donate to the Housing First Project because trustees believe it is something trust founder Stanley Reitman would be proud to support.

“Titanic of the West Coast” – Canadian Pacific Steamship SS Princess Sophia sailed from Skagway with a full load of more than 350 passengers and crew. Many of them were heading south for the winter, having worked in the interior of the Yukon and Alaska territories all summer. The festive mood was soon disrupted in the middle of the night when the ship struck Vanderbilt Reef in Lynn. Learn more about this and other special projects.
