Living Treasures

Let Seward Community Foundation help you honor a friend or loved one!

The Living Treasures Program was created for donors to honor friends, relatives and community members who are valued and make a difference in a variety of ways.  Your gift to the Living Treasures Program in the name of a specific person will support the work of local nonprofits and will help build a better future for the Seward and Moose Pass communities. With a minimum donation of $25.00, you can recognize someone as a Living Treasure.

Everyone has that one friend who already has everything. Some people are just tricky to buy gifts for! This year, why not give the gift of philanthropy? Giving in honor of someone else is a beautiful way to show them that you care about what they care about. The Seward Community Foundation has thirteen funds to choose from, each focusing on a unique cause for the betterment of the Seward area. Is your friend passionate about music and arts? Donate to the Ralph and Anne Hatch Family Arts, Music and Education Fund. Is the welfare of our elders most near and dear to their heart? Donate to the Frank Dieckgraeff Memorial Fund for Seward Seniors. Whatever fund you choose, your donation will contribute to the health and longevity of the community you and your friend both love.

Individuals named as Living Treasures will be noted in the Seward Community Foundation’s web pages, newsletters and on SCF’s Facebook page. Each also will receive a special card to let them know you consider them a treasure.

To make your donation honoring a Living Treasure, please indicate the person’s name on your check, or in “Additional Instructions” when applying online and we’ll take care of the rest.
