Community Action Fund: Anchorage Democrats Give Back
Anchorage Democrats Community Action Fund is intended to support
local initiatives that demonstrate a benefit to the greater
Anchorage community, made possible through Alaska's Charitable Gaming Funds through the Alaska Democratic Party. Projects that create social, educational, artistic and recreational initiatives are invited to apply each year to receive a grant.
Applicants can be individuals, businesses or non-profit organizations
that reside within the municipality of Anchorage. The applicant
should clearly articulate how funds will be used, and how the use of
funds will benefit the community.
