Welcome to your North Star Community Foundation

The North Star Community Foundation (NSCF) improves the quality of life for Fairbanks North Star Borough and interior region through philanthropy, community development, and public service.

Pick. Click. Give: a valuable resource for the Fairbanks community.

Pick. Click. Give

Pick. Click. Give.

These three simple words turn out to be a valuable source of support for the North Star Community Foundation.  Last year we made an effort to call attention to the fact that North Star Borough residents can elect to support the Foundation when filling out their Dividend Fund application.  That resulted in a significant increase in PCG donations to NSCF.

The Chena Tool Library enhances self sufficiency, community resiliency and neighborly relations by supporting DIY endeavors through sharing tools, knowledge and skills.

Fairbanks is a community of do-it-yourselfers, from homebuilding to car repair to chicken raising. However, not everyone can afford all the tools needed for these endeavors, nor does everyone have the space to store them or even the desire to own them for infrequent or one-time use.

We are the water keepers — the Friends of Fox Spring. We are actively working together to protect a precious community water resource: our Fox Spring.
 
The state has operated Fox Spring for more than 50 years and thousands of local citizens depend on this supply of good water. Interior Alaskans understand the state budget constraints and the need for financial contributions, and Friends of Fox Spring gladly accept that responsibility.

Donate to help us keep Fox Spring Flowing.
