Challenge Grants


Challenge grants show true Neighbor Power! Anchorage Park Foundation¬†challenges community groups to earn a matching grant for a municipal park or trail improvement. Challenge grants are special because they…

  • Improve Anchorage parks and trails
  • Help make community priorities a reality
  • Engage community groups to come together to improve parks and trails
  • Increase community stewardship
  • Develop effective partnerships within our community
  • Create opportunities for public education
  • Inspire volunteerism and philanthropy at a grassroots level

For every $1 raised through cash, volunteer time, donations, grants, or in-kind services by Challenge Grantees, the Anchorage Park Foundation will match $1.


APF Challenge Grants are made possible with generous support by the Rasmuson Foundation.
