WE ARE A TEAM OF ALASKANS who believe in a rich and sustainable future for our state.  Though we come from very different backgrounds and different parts of Alaska, we share a recognition of the great strengths of the people of this place and a commitment to unleashing the untapped potential of Alaskans and our communities.  

Alaska Venture Fund Partnerships

The Alaska Venture Fund is a philanthropic fund dedicated to a sustainable future for Alaska and all Alaskans. AVF is fiscally sponsored by the New Venture Fund, a nationwide platform that makes it efficient and cost effective to launch and operate charitable projects. Fiscal sponsors enable nonprofit coalitions and projects to accept tax-deductible contributions without the expense of building the infrastructure of an entirely new organization. Talented nonprofit leaders are freed of operational burdens while gaining best-in-class administrative, accounting, legal and nonprofit compliance services as well as excellent benefits for employees. That means more return and more impact for every donor dollar.


Through our relationship with the New Venture Fund, the Alaska Venture Fund extends these same services to promising and innovative partnerships, coalitions, and for-benefit enterprises created and driven by Alaskans in the pursuit of a sustainable future. Just as projects at the New Venture Fund are distinct, Alaska Venture Fund Partnerships are separate projects shaped by their own individual project leadership and non-fiduciary advisory councils.  Each Alaska Venture Fund Partnership is responsible for its own program content and fundraising.


The Alaska Venture Fund only supports partnership projects that adhere to our principles and that represent strong investments in a sustainable future for Alaska and all Alaskans.

New Venture Fund is a registered 501(c)(3) charitable organization. Alaska Venture Fund is a project of the New Venture Fund.
