Alaska Airlines Foundation awards grants to address critical community needs

The Alaska Airlines Foundation has announced it is awarding USD 315,000 in LIFT grants to 23 nonprofits in Alaska, California, Hawaii, Oregon and Washington, the company said.

These grants are in response to urgent needs of food insecurity, shelter, remote educational support and other needs of families caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

LIFT grants are inspired by the principle of lift behind an airplane taking flight. The company said the grants enable opportunity to sustain and lift one another to come through this crisis.

The Alaska Airlines Foundation is a private, independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization based in Anchorage, Alaska.
