Fund – Hope Endowment Fund

Juneau Hope Endowment Fund

The Juneau Hope Endowment Fund was established in September 2014 with the intent of supporting 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations and government agencies that provide programs and services in the Juneau community to address the following social issues:

  • Homelessness
  • Hospice
  • Mental Health
  • Suicide Prevention
  • Substance Abuse
  • Relief for Victims of Violence

In 2015, the City & Borough of Juneau started adding their social service block grant funds to the annual Hope Fund grant program. In 2017, the Foundation will award approximately $1.9 million in grants to organizations and agencies that address these social issues. The Foundation seeks to fund the highest priority social service needs in Juneau. As part of the grant making process, the Foundation convenes close to twenty community meetings with local social service providers. The purpose of these meetings is to establish priority needs and to encourage cooperative proposals. In addition, the Foundation utilizes a Professional Advisory Committee to review all proposals and make funding recommendations to the Foundation’s Board of Directors.
