Douglas-Dornan Foundation grants

The Douglas-Dornan Foundation will accept applications for grants of $200 to $3000 until June 1. The foundation offers grants to organizations that benefit and enhance the health, education and welfare of Southeast Alaskans.

The Douglas-Dornan Foundation was established in honor of Brian Douglas and Wythe Dornan upon their death in 1993. The couple moved to Juneau in 1989 and became involved in numerous activities. She worked in a pre-school day-care center and was active in the National Association for the Education of Young Children in Southeast Alaska. He organized an ultimate Frisbee club and a home brewers club. They served as foster parents, volunteered at the Glory Hole and supported activities to protect the environment.

Grants are awarded to applicants who demonstrate sufficient need for services, equipment, activities or training that support children, youth, elders or other special-needs groups.

Examples of possible foundation financial support include, but are not limited to

• Nonprofit groups, schools or child-care institutions in Southeast Alaska, foster-parent programs and early childhood education programs.

• Individuals, within organizations, who are pursuing special training or education in any profession, to defray tuition, transportation or lodging expenses related to their education.

• Events or special services that enhance the overall quality of life, such as amateur sports, children's music and theater, and encourage participation through sponsorship of programs and events.

Grants will be awarded by Sept. 1.

For more information or an application form, contact Paul D. Douglas, Trustee, 5050 Thane Road, 99801, or call (907) 463-3042.
