In the Community / Philanthropy
Alyeska and its staff are proud of our Alaska roots and our commitment to Alaska’s future — we call it #TAPSPride. The company honors communities along the pipeline corridor and throughout Alaska through our generous philanthropy program, which includes company-directed gifts, our annual United Way campaign, and encouraging employee involvement and volunteerism. Focus areas include underserved populations, youth, diversity, health and social services, and the environment.
Alyeska’s philanthropy program supports community events and organizations year-round through contributions, sponsorships and other financial donations. Our primary focus is fueling and building up healthy vibrant communities. Especially, Alyeska supports partnerships that elevate nonprofit organizations’ resilience and effectiveness; we believe in community collaboration and leveraging our resources to strengthen the fundraising, brand awareness, and work of organizations whose missions and focus areas are companionable with our own philanthropic focus areas. We seek creative opportunities to raise up and support these organizations’ work that simultaneously reflect positively on Alyeska’s investments and commitments. In short, our philanthropy program exceeds simply granting financial donations; we strive to help viable organizations grow and prosper and we welcome requests for support in this spirit.
Alyeska’s financial guidelines are as follows:
- Applicants must be an Alaska nonprofit 501 C3.
- Applications must be submitted online; letters, emails, and other submissions will not be considered.
- Applicants must align with our finding focus areas.
- Nonprofits must enter information to receive an ACH (direct deposit) donation. Alyeska does not make payments via checks.
Alyeska’s donation cycle is on a year-round basis. Each budget year begins in January and concludes in December. Gifts must be applied toward an event or work in that calendar year; there is no forward funding of work.
As we work through the COVID-19 pandemic, we recognize 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 may be prioritized.
This funding strategy will be regularly reviewed.
