Each year, the Juneau Community Foundation celebrates the generosity of an individual, a business and non-profit organization who help make Juneau vibrant and healthy. The 2018 Philanthropy Awards Dinner, held in September, recognized the following honorees:
Sealaska is recruiting for a seat on its board of directors that became vacant when Director Ross Soboleff passed away in July. Soboleff, elected to the board in 2014, saw his role on the board as a way to contribute his knowledge and experience in a positive way. Ross chaired Sealaska’s governance committee, and part of his legacy is helping create a process to fill vacant board seats by encouraging highly-qualified shareholders to apply in the case of an unexpected vacancy.
The Sealaska board of directors announced its endorsement in support of the re-election of Governor Bill Walker and Lt. Gov. Byron Mallott. As part of its endorsement, the board is contributing up to $100,000 to Unite Alaska, a political action committee formed to support the re-election of Walker and Mallott. Unite Alaska is part of National independent group Unite America, which has also endorsed governor Walker.
