RurAL CAP Foundation Application and Guidelines

Fiscal Year 2019

Applications MUST be received by August 31, 2019

The RurAL CAP Foundation funds a limited number of small grants for educational and charitable purposes that focus on low-income people and rural communities. Grants are made in the amount of $500 to $5,000. Eligible applications are considered from 501(c)(3) nonprofit and governmental organizations in rural Alaska which do not have an open grant and which have not received a grant from the Foundation in the prior 12 months.

The Foundation’s major interests are to:

  • Provide support to low-income people to expand their capabilities through training and educational opportunities;
  • Provide opportunities for community representatives to participate in forums, workshops, and conferences that protect and enhance cultural traditions and subsistence practices;
  • Strengthen the skills and capacity of local leadership in rural communities; and
  • Promote healthy people, sustainable communities and vibrant cultures.

Examples of the Types of Grants Awarded:

  • Projects that encourage the sharing of knowledge and engage volunteers and community members;
  • Events where community members learn skills for life, such as a youth music camp or Elders teaching youth how to subsistence hunt or fish;
  • Projects that have long-term impacts on a community, such as building a garden or recycling center; and
  • Events that build the capacity of local government, such as workshops on project design and proposal writing. (Foundation funds are often awarded for supplies and transportation costs; funds are typically not awarded to pay stipends to people who might otherwise volunteer or to buy laptops or equipment that benefits only a few.)
  • The Foundation generally doesn’t fund: employee salaries, overhead or indirect, paying wages for work normally done by volunteers (e.g. picking up trash), junk food or soda pop.
