Pioneering a more robust and connected community.


Who is the MTA Foundation?

Each year, the MTA Foundation invests in its community through donations and major grants. The goal is to pioneer a more robust and connected community. Organizations that work to further the mission of the MTA Foundation have an opportunity to apply. Because we love the community we live in, we also invest in general community support. Together, we can grow Alaska!



How is the MTA Foundation Funded?

MTA Gaming’s Annual Tournament:

MTA Gaming’s annual tournament is not only Alaska’s largest esports event, it is also one of the largest sources of funding for the MTA Foundation. 100% of the event’s sponsorship donations go towards the MTA Foundation. Over the last two years alone, this event has raised nearly $60,000 towards helping us fulfill our mission. Interested in becoming a sponsor? Click here to learn more.

Escheated and Unlocatable Capital Credits:

When MTA is unable to locate a former member to distribute capital credits, the State of Alaska allows those funds to go towards the MTA Foundation where they are invested into our communities through our annual scholarship program, donations and grants.
