Located at the head of historic Resurrection Bay on the Kenai Peninsula, Seward is hard at work making changes for its future. Committed residents recently helped fund a new library and museum, as well as funding and constructing a waterfront playground for young children. 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. 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. 2021 NEWS!
