Alaska’s regional and village corporations have become a huge financial asset to Alaska, but their business success, contributions to the state’s economy and their role in strengthening Alaska’s small rural communities is unknown to many.

We hope to change that. Today, amid uncertainties facing Alaska, the ANCSA corporations provide a powerful stabilizing influence. In 2014, regional and selected village corporations earned $8.578 billion in revenues, $305 million in net profits and paid out $156 million in dividends to shareholders who mostly live in Alaska, according to data from the ANCSA Regional Assoc. Also, 59 percent of the corporations’ net incomes was distributed in dividends, scholarships and support for nonprofit organizations in 2014.

Alaskans need to know this. We want to do our part in telling the story.
