Our Work

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

Funds

Our purpose is to use charitable donations from individuals like you to fund programs that improve the health and lives of Alaska Native people and all Alaskans. Our mission is to make Alaska Natives the healthiest people in the world. With your help, we can.

When you donate to the Healthy Alaska Native Foundation, your money goes to supporting programs that fill existing needs and achieve positive results, from pediatric and cancer care to one of Anchorage’s busiest emergency rooms.
