The Trust provides leadership in the advocacy, planning, implementing, and catalytic funding of services to improve Alaska’s mental health system, and seeks to improve the lives of its beneficiaries. Beneficiaries include Alaskans who experience mental illness, developmental and intellectual disabilities, substance use disorders, Alzheimer’s disease and related dementia, and traumatic brain injury.
Trustees oversee approximately $700 million of financial and real estate assets, including one million acres of land. In the last 26 years, trustees have approved more than $355 million in grants to fund more than 3,200 beneficiary-serving projects and more than 8,600 mini grants to beneficiaries across Alaska.
Membership on this dynamic board is based on ability in financial management and investment, in land management, or in services for the beneficiaries of the Trust. Additionally, applicants cannot have previously worked for an organization or served on a board of an organization that received a grant or contract from the Trust within the last two years.
