Donors are vital to the success of the Calista Education and Culture, Inc. Without the very generous support of individuals, corporations and businesses, we would not be able to help Calista shareholders and descendants reach their full educational potential. Your help provides critical financial support and you or your company with a unique opportunity for widespread visibility in our communities.

Many scholarship recipients have graduated and returned to our Region as lawyers, teachers, nurses, accountants, business managers, pilots, engineers, welders, electricians and heavy equipment operators. Since the establishment of the Calista Scholarship, we have graduated students from colleges and vocational schools in Alaska and the Lower 48.

Your investment will help students achieve their educational goals and create new opportunities. It will also ensure that the Calista Region, its people and Alaska benefit from a strong leadership base that has a deep understanding of the Native community.

As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, donations to the Calista Education and Culture, Inc. are tax deductible as specified in IRS regulations. Federal Identification Code 92-0088631
