Year-end contributions have brought the Seward Community Foundation close to a goal that will earn $17,500 in matching funds from the Rasmuson Foundation for the SCF’s endowment and grantmaking funds. If Seward and Moose Pass residents donate a total of $3,140 in additional funds by December 31, Rasmuson will give $15,000 to the Foundation’s growing endowment, along with a $2,500 bonus for grants in 2013.
Donations to the SCF are never spent–the endowment is wisely invested, and the interest earned is given back to the community through grants and support for nonprofit organizations. The SCF is an affiliate of the Alaska Community Foundation, which has focused on creating a structure through which individuals and organizations can support local priorities.
To make a tax-deductible donation to the Seward Community Foundation or for more information, please visit www.sewardcf.org. Checks payable to ACF/Seward Community Foundation can be sent to SCF at PO Box 933 in Seward. Happy Holidays to all Seward and Moose Pass residents, and best wishes for 2013!
