Chilkat Valley Community Foundation

The Chilkat Valley Community Foundation (CVCF) allows joyful givers to realize community dreams. Locally advised, CVCF is solely focused on the needs of the Chilkat Valley, which includes the Haines Borough and the Chilkat Indian Village of Klukwan. Approximately 2500 residents make their homes in the valley. In addition, numerous seasonal residents and visitors enjoy all the community has to offer.

The Chilkat Valley Community Foundation meets our community’s needs by increasing connections between people and the organizations that serve them. We have more than 75 nonprofits that serve all ages and provide educational, cultural, health, social, historical, environmental, recreational, and arts-related opportunities.

The Chilkat Valley Community Foundation works with donors to create “permanent funds” to benefit the Chilkat Valley. Your gifts will build long-term endowed funds, allowing you to invest in our community’s future and contribute to our quality of life.
