Business Partnership Program

Seward Community Foundation  launched the Business Partnership Program in collaboration with local businesses in 2021.

Stephanie Millane, owner of Sunny Cove Kayaking, approached SCF about creating an opportunity through her online booking system for SCF’s benefit. During guest checkout, customers have the chance to donate to SCF, up to $250. Stephanie believed this was a way to use her voice to raise funds for a foundation close to her heart. In addition to collecting donations, Sunny Cove Kayaking will match up to $2,000 of donations collected on behalf of SCF.

Excited about an opportunity to collaborate with our local business community, SCF’s Advisory Board went to work to make this program available to all businesses. SCF’s Advisory Board member, Ryan Fisher, owner of Exit Glacier Guides, was excited about this potential and immediately signed up!

What is a Seward Community Foundation Business Partner?  SCF Business Partners collect donations through an add-on option during customer checkouts.  Businesses can also choose to match collected donations to further support SCF’s mission.
