Celebrating 65 Years

At Rasmuson Foundation, one question weaves through the work of convening, grantmaking and examining ways to improve life in Alaska: What would Elmer do? It’s our self-check on whether our course is true to his vision. In our 65th year, in the midst of a pandemic, we step back from the moment to offer rare interviews with Rasmuson family and community members who serve on our board. More than ever, we are committed to doing as our founders desired to help Alaskans help themselves.
