Overview:

Greater Sitka Legacy Fund Grant Program

Individual grant amounts will be awarded from $1,000-$3,000 for a total of up to $12,000.

Applications will be accepted from qualified, tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organizations (or equivalents, such as Tribal entities, schools, and faith-based organizations) that support charitable organizations and programs in the Sitka area. Grants may support a broad range of community needs, including but not limited to health and wellness, education, the great outdoors, arts and culture, and community development.

Grant projects must be completed within one year of award and are subject to the grantee completing an online grant agreement signifying acceptance of the terms and conditions of the grant. A final grant report and any other overdue follow ups must also be submitted online before the grantee will be eligible for future grant opportunities from GSLF.
