Cape Fox Cares Highlights
This year brought many challenges that no one could have predicted. Yet, through it all, Cape Fox Corporation (CFC) remained resilient and united. This spirit of unity meant 2020 ended with another year of growth. It also meant CFC could give back to our communities and our Shareholders more than ever. CFC has always included in its mission the need to provide for our communities and make them stronger. It is a tradition passed down from our Tlingit ancestors. We are proud to highlight the philanthropy exhibited throughout 2020 because Cape
The holiday season is often about giving to others. Cape Fox Corporation (CFC) believes now more than ever; we need to give back to our communities and to those in need. This year, that is just what CFC did. On December 15, 2020, CFC through its Cape Fox Cares Program gave the gift of food to the Saxman community who are our family and friends. CFC wanted to be sure the community would have the food before the holidays so everyone could enjoy a holiday family meal.
During these unprecedented times, giving back to our communities has become even more important. Tlingit natives have a strong belief in family and supporting the whole community. They believe that by giving back to others, you are making everyone stronger. The Tlingit natives of Cape Fox Corporation (CFC) have instilled these same beliefs into the organization. As the company continues to grow, CFC recognized the need to establish an organized, planned donation system. This new program is called Cape Fox Cares. The purpose of the program is to ensure CFC is giving back in the most effective way while still supporting our communities as much as possible.
We live our culture each and every day, our subsistence, our language, our culture, and our elders. Without our elders, we wouldn’t be here. I want it to be perpetuated for several generations…don’t be afraid to step in and help, don’t be afraid to get involved.
