We were awarded a $25,000 grant from Coeur Alaska - Kensington Mine. This enabled us to complete phase three of our three part fundraising plan.

October, 2019 We were awarded a matching grant of $10,000 from the Juneau Community Foundation's Blackwell Fund. In a month, we matched this grant. Three board members had opportunity to visit Matt Blackwell who is the son of the late Mike Blackwell. Matt works at the Morrison Planetarium at the California Academy of Sciences.
The Blackwell Fund continues the legacy of Juneau philanthropist
Mike Blackwell. His two sons, Matthew and Andrew, told us they are “really
excited about this project. It fits very well with our father’s legacy and I
think he would enjoy it”.
