Foundations' grants become access

 


On behalf of Southeast Alaska Independent Living (SAIL), we would like to thank the Chilkat Valley Community Foundation and Wells Fargo for their recent matching grants. These grants successfully encouraged dozens of individuals and businesses to make financial contributions to SAIL during our recent fundraising campaign. We are excited to announce that we raised over $4,000 for SAIL’s Last Resort Consumer Fund, which is used to help seniors and individuals with disabilities living in our community maintain or become as independent as possible (i.e. building a wheelchair ramp, installing grab bars or purchasing medically necessary equipment not covered by insurance). The generosity and support of our friends and neighbors in this community is always amazing. Thanks again. SAIL will honor your gifts and use every penny wisely!
