Rasmuson Foundation Capital Grants (Tiers 1 and 2)
Applications accepted on an ongoing basis
The Rasmuson Foundation provides capital grants for
Alaska-based nonprofits, individual artists, and
nonprofit leaders that are working towards promoting a
better quality of life for all Alaskans.
Historically, grants have been made in the areas of human
services, arts and culture, community and economic
development, sports and recreation, health, environment,
education, human rights, public safety, and science.
Capital grants fall under two tiers.
Tier 1 grants are for short-term
projects that include, but are not limited to, the
purchase of furnishings, appliances, vehicles,
technology, building construction and renovation,
medical equipment, sports equipment, scientific
equipment, musical instruments, and library
Tier 2 grants are for large building
projects and projects of strategic importance or an
innovative nature that address issues of broad
community or statewide significance.
Organizations must be based in Alaska, have 501(c)(3)
status, and be classified as a "not a private foundation"
under section 509(a) of the tax code.
In some cases, the Rasmuson Foundation will fund units of
government, such as a city or tribe, or religious
organizations if the project has broad community impact.
Amount of funding
Tier 1: Up to $25,000
