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 2300 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.

Another Summits for Success milestone met thanks for the generosity of CVCF donors!
In April of 2022, the Advisory Board launched the “Summits for Success” operating endowment campaign, a multi-year fundraising effort to grow the Operating Endowment to $600,000 by 2029. The returns from this fund will assure CVCF’s future sustainability. Thank you to all the donors who have supported this campaign since the launch.
We had a match in 2023: $25,000 from The Alaska Community Foundation and Rasmuson Foundation. Our donors met this match on May 9th!
A huge THANK YOU to everyone who invested in the CVCF Fund and the CVCF Operating Endowment between January 1 and May 9, 2023. Your donation was matched 1:1 and those matching dollars will be invested in the Operating Endowment Fund.
Stay tuned for future matches!
