As an Affiliate of The Alaska Community Foundation, the Cordova Community Foundation’s (CCF) goal is to support projects that enhance the quality of life for Cordova residents, addressing immediate needs while working toward long-term improvements. We are continually listening and learning about what is important to you.
We use proceeds from our growing permanent endowment to award yearly grants to support charitable organizations and programs in Cordova. Grant awards support healthy communities by addressing a variety of needs, including: health and wellness, compassionate health care, innovative education, community enrichment, active enjoyment of the natural environment, and arts and cultural expression. We seek projects that have the potential to impact a broad range of local residents and show collaboration with other organizations in our hometown. New applicants are strongly encouraged to apply.
Please feel free to contact any member of the Advisory Board if you have a project you hope we’ll support.
NEW IN 2022: The Cordova Community Foundation will be hosting a Grant Writing Workshop on Tuesday, September 20 from Noon to 1:30pm. Learn more and register at CCF Grant Writing Workshop.
