The Eyak Foundation

The Eyak Foundation, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, was established to support the educational and cultural needs of our Native Alaskan shareholders and their descendants. The foundation provides annual scholarships for both college and vocational training programs, and also supports apprenticeships and internships programs for the shareholders.  EyakTek is proud to be affiliated with the Eyak Foundation and actively supports fundraising efforts on an annual basis.
