A Commitment to Community

CIRI believes in helping to build a strong and safe community where opportunity and prosperity are 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 socially driven enterprises 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 socially driven enterprises page.

CIRI also supports 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’s 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 have pledged over $2 million to the organization through the years.
