Juneau Community Foundation


The Juneau Community Foundation and the Brady family of Skagway are pleased to announce the opening of a new round of funding for qualifying arts and education programs and projects, through the Margaret Frans Brady Fund.

The MFB Fund was set up in 2012 as a donor advised fund to support worthy arts and education projects, or scholarships in Skagway and northern Southeast Alaska. The fund provides scholarships through their spring application process, and supports arts programs and projects in the fall through the current application process.

All creative arts will be considered including writing, music, visual and performance arts. Education projects may be submitted by qualifying schools/districts or tax-exempt non-profits that have education components. Applications are found at and are due Oct. 20.

Qualifying non-profit entities are encouraged to apply for:

a) Projects that enhance the arts in the community, including, but not limited to: arts facilities, libraries, symposiums, marketing programs, and website development.

b) Arts education in the school and community, including music education and programs that teach other creative arts.

c) Arts councils and other non-profits that support the arts with programs and facilities.

e) Other youth education programs or activities that the donors would deem worthy of funding.

Applications for the Margaret Frans Brady Fund fall funding period will appear on the JCF website: until October 20, 2013. Approximately $9,500 is being made available for this round of funding.
