As noted in a recent front page Juneau Empire article, the week of Nov. 11 is National Community Foundation Week. The Juneau Community Foundation celebrated early by recognizing donors and presenting our annual Philanthropist of the Year award. The Juneau Community Foundation, one of the 700 community foundations described in the Empire article, is a partner of the Alaska Community Foundation. Based in Juneau, we are directly accountable to the community we serve. We draw our strength from the efforts of your neighbors and friends here in Southeast Alaska.
