Founded in 1980, the Alaska Conservation Foundation (ACF) is the only public foundation dedicated to conservation in Alaska, connecting thousands of committed donors and businesses worldwide with more than a hundred grassroots conservation organizations in Alaska. ACF serves as funder and supportive resource for a diverse community of nonprofits working to protect and wisely manage Alaska’s natural resources. Over the last 30 years, ACF has awarded more than $29 million in grants to over 200 Alaskan organizations and individuals. ACF has been at the center of many successful environmental initiatives since its inception, including the long standing protection of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. Today, ACF provides leadership and coordination expertise to Alaska’s most critical conservation issues.
Alaska Conservation Foundation builds strategic leadership and support for Alaskan efforts to take care of wild lands, waters, and wildlife, which sustain diverse cultures, healthy communities, and prosperous economies.
