Seward Community Foundation

Located at the head of historic Resurrection Bay on the Kenai Peninsula, Seward is hard at work making changes for its future.

The endowment that the Seward Community Foundation is building allows grants to be made that improve the lives of Seward and Moose Pass residents in areas such as health, education, human services, arts and culture, youth, and community development.  SCF connects people who care to the causes that make a difference and matter most to them.

Like other Alaskan communities, Seward’s population booms in the summertime when fishing and sailing are popular. The area hosts the famed Mt. Marathon Race on July 4th, when nearly a thousand hardy people run up and then down Mt. Marathon in the second-oldest organized foot race in the country.

The Seward Community Foundation is locally advised by a dynamic group of citizens who are attuned to the changing needs and goals of Seward and Moose Pass nonprofit groups.

Your generosity in 2024 will make a difference! Every donation to SCF’s unrestricted endowment fund or the operating endowment fund will:

  • Help SCF earn a generous 1:1 match of up to $20,000 by the Rasmuson Foundation and The Alaska Community Foundation, as part of the Affiliate Program over the next year (2024).
  • Support local nonprofits through grants and educational training.
  • Connect donors with causes they care about.
  • Be a resource in the community.
