Earlier this year, the Alaska Airlines Foundation awarded grants to 12 nonprofits in Alaska, Hawaii and Washington.
"This year marks the largest number of donations provided in the nearly 20-year history of the Alaska Airlines Foundation," said board chair Joe Sprague. "Our goal is to make a meaningful impact in these communities and to invest in their futures."
The Alaska Airlines Foundation was established in 1998 as an independent 501c (3) nonprofit organization as a way to supplement Alaska Airlines' overall corporate giving program which last year donated $12 million in cash and in-kind support to charities throughout the airline's system.
Each year, the Alaska Airlines Foundation distributes cash grants to nonprofit organizations in Alaska, Hawaii and Washington that support education and workforce development efforts. Applications are reviewed twice a year. Applications for 2017 are due April 15 and Sept. 15.
