Through post-secondary scholarships and grants, internship opportunities, research and other education projects, The Foundation, as a separate 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, has helped to fulfill one of CIRI’s major corporate goals, “to improve the lives of its shareholders.” Since its establishment in 1982, The CIRI Foundation has contributed more than $15 million for the Alaska Native beneficiaries of CIRI to participate in postsecondary education.
