Alyeska has modified its philanthropy funding strategy for 2020 in support of the ongoing COVID-19 response. The company will evaluate routine giving, applying a more rigorous review prior to approval. All approved funding requests and commitments, including for canceled or postponed fundraisers and events, will be maintained to minimize near-term impacts to local/statewide nonprofits. Recognizing the elevated significance of many critical health and social service nonprofits, Alyeska will monitor our communities for emergent needs and be positioned to make quick-turnaround donations to support efforts related to COVID-19. Health and social service programs will be prioritized. This funding strategy will be reviewed quarterly.
Donation requests can be submitted at https://giving.alyeska-pipeline.com.
