A Commitment to Community

CIRI believes in helping to build a strong and safe community where opportunities and prosperity is available for all. CIRI recognizes its responsibility to support the organizations that fight hunger, poverty and homelessness, and promote education.

CIRI is committed to social responsibility. It’s part of our mission. CIRI helped to establish and supports a family of nonprofit organizations that provide health care, housing, employment, education, access to justice and other social and cultural enrichment services for Alaska Natives and others. To learn more about these organizations, please visit our nonprofits page.

CIRI also supports various charitable organizations in the Cook Inlet region and participates in fundraising events throughout the year. Through a combination of strategic relationships with local nonprofits, our business partnership school, the annual CIRI Golf Classic, volunteer activities and other community investments, CIRI strengthens the health and well-being of its neighbors.

CIRI and its team of dedicated employees play an active role in improving their community. CIRI employees give directly to charities, serve on the boards of local community organizations and participate in CIRI-led campaigns. An active community leader in the annual United Way of Anchorage campaign, CIRI and its employees annually pledge more than $100,000 to the organization.
