The Healthy Alaska Natives Foundation believes that health care truly goes beyond treating those who are sick – we want to help Alaskans stay out of the hospital in the first place. That’s why the Foundation supports key initiatives that deliver sustainable, effective and culturally relevant health care, from helping improve medical facilities that serve our people to supporting wellness and prevention programs that impact our populations and advancing healthy village environments around Alaska. By facing the greatest health challenges head-on, our people can lead healthy lifestyles and avoid long-term health issues.

When you donate to the Healthy Alaska Natives Foundation, your money goes to supporting programs that fill existing needs and achieve positive results. Click here to learn more!

Important Changes in 2018!

In 2018, the Healthy Alaska Natives Foundation (HANF) was approved as a separate non-profit charitable organization. The purpose of the Foundation remains the same; to further the vision and mission of ANTHC that Alaska Native people are the healthiest people in the world.

HANF receives a base level of support for staff from ANTHC, but we rely greatly on the generosity of individuals and corporations to support the unfunded and unmet needs of the Tribal Health System. With your generous support, we will continue to provide support for those areas that we have traditionally funded – Patient Care, Healthy Kids, and Healthy Communities. Thank you!


You can still support the Lori Lange Memorial Toy Fund!

ToyFund_KidswWagonWe need your help! We are running out of toys! In the last month alone, we have provided over 500 toys to kids at the hospital and we need your help so that we don’t run out over the summer.

Donors to the Lori Lange Memorial Toy Fund provide stuffed animals to all of the kids who come in to the Alaska Native Medical Center. This has become a standard of care for our youngest patients that can help to ease their pain and the stress of hospitalization. Click here to learn more about the Lori Lange Memorial Toy Fund.

For just $5, you can provide a stuffed animal friend to help a young patient through a difficult time. Thank you for your help bringing smiles to the kids at ANMC!
