Our goal is to align our corporate giving with Sealaska’s strategic priorities and core values.

How we do it

At Sealaska, we believe in investing in our shareholders in ways that are tied to our core values. Donation applications are scored based on their alignment with Sealaska values, potential for community impact, ties to our focus areas, geographic reach and budget efficiency. Applications are reviewed for alignment with Sealaska’s values and focus areas. A higher score indicates a stronger alignment and potential impact.
