Get Involved

Alaska Natives are the healthiest people in the world – it’s an inspired vision that will take inspired giving, inspired action and inspired leadership to achieve. Alaskans have that inspired spirit and the Healthy Alaska Natives Foundation (HANF) is channeling the energy of our state’s donors, partners and advocates into the kind of philanthropy that is making this ambitious vision a reality.

To make the biggest impact, consider joining us as a donor to help bring essential services to individuals and communities in need. You can direct a gift to the initiative that you are most passionate about – health care improvements, wellness and prevention, or healthy village environments – or ask HANF to use your gift where it’s most needed.  You can also donate items for our various events as an in-kind donation. Whether you are an artist, photographer, or would like to donate a piece of jewelry, service or merchandise, all the proceeds goes to supporting programs that fill existing needs and achieve positive results. Please consider donating. Your donation is tax deductible, EIN #92-0162721.

You can also volunteer to help. Volunteer opportunities range from providing support for HANF events like the Raven’s Ball, to visiting patients or helping in the gift shop at the Alaska Native Medical Center.  To inquire about volunteering for the Raven’s Ball, please call 907-729-5652, or email us at info@inspiringgoodhealth.org. If you have any questions about volunteer services and programs at ANMC, including the Gift Shop, evening entertainment, or other volunteer activities, please call 907-729-1120.

The Healthy Alaska Natives Foundation was created in 2007 to support the vision of the Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium (ANTHC) by raising awareness of unmet and unfunded needs of our health care system and building a broad and deep philanthropic base. Successful requests will demonstrate a direct impact to patients or program participants in one of three (3) initiatives areas:

• Patient Care
• Healthy Kids
• Healthy Communities

What is not allowed:

• Administrative expenses (salaries, computers, office furniture, travel, etc.)
• Prizes, gifts or raffles
• Conference expenses
• Research projects
• Other expenses not directly related to patient and/or program needs

All requests are screened internally by the Foundation staff and CEO, and may be approved for review by the HANF Oversight Committee of the Board of Directors. The HANF Oversight Committee meets quarterly to review funding requests. Funding requests must be submitted by 5 PM thirty (30) days prior to the Committee meeting.
In 2017, the HANF Oversight Committee will meet:

  • 5/15/2017
  • 8/21/2017
  • 10/23/2017

Requestors will be notified of the funding decision within five (5) days of the Committee meeting, either by email or telephone.
Please complete the FY17 HANF Funding Request form and limit your response to this one (1) page. If you have a quote for a specific expense, you may attach it. More information may be requested if necessary. Requests may be submitted via email to info@inspiringgoodhealth.org, inter-department mail at C-HANF, or in person at the Foundation offices, located on the 1st floor of the COB.
