The Greater Sitka Legacy Fund supports local resiliency and self-reliance, now and in the future. We are committed to keeping our community a vital, progressive, and healthy place where people can live, work, raise families and retire. To fulfill our mission for the community, we help meet short and long-term community needs through projects and grants to organizations within our community. The Greater Sitka Legacy Fund also promotes many ways for people to invest their time, talent and resources into our community.
Sitka is a community of people committed to working together to solve problems, nurturing our valued historical and environmental heritages, celebrating life through spiritual, artistic, athletic, and cultural expression, promoting education and economic prosperity; all to sustain the well-being of our necessary organizations and of our citizens of every age.
The Greater Sitka Legacy Fund is a long-term endowment fund for the Sitka area. Your gifts will be part of a permanent fund, allowing you to invest in our community’s future and contribute to our quality of life. As this endowment fund grows through investment income, bequests, and continued donations, it will offer an increasingly large resource to meet local needs over time.
