  • Our communication about philanthropy is front and center in our work, and you can see four tactics on the front page of our website. First, our website prominently features stories written by literary artists about the nonprofit partners we work with. Not about our grants specifically, but about the role the nonprofit serves in communities or in the lives of individuals.Second, each week we post a blog post about an issue, a grant we’ve made, an accomplishment by nonprofit partner, or even an event that is upcoming. This is were we share what’s important to the organization in any point in time.Third, we have an active media relations program where we not only distribute news about the Foundation, and here you can see our press releases, but we also try to link reporters to interesting nonprofit stories in a more informal way to make sure the sector gets coverage. And fourth, we are active users of social networks to share stories and information and engage Alaskans in conversations about philanthropy
