Funding brighter futures

Our focus areas for charitable giving include youth-serving programs that include mentoring, leadership, education, equality, and social progress, and improving the health of our communities.

We support youth development organizations with budgets under $2.5 million providing direct services to youth across the state.

The ALKU Foundation is committed to supporting a diverse range of programs dedicated to empowering girls and women. These initiatives include facilitating access to education and career opportunities, advocating for equal rights, and providing crucial support for women facing domestic abuse, all with a steadfast commitment to fostering overall gender equality.
