The Tlingit Natives have a strong sense of family and community. In preserving our Alaska Native heritage, we continue the belief of not just being a part of a community, but also giving back. By making our communities strong, we are making each other strong.
Cape Fox Cares
Cape Fox Corporation (CFC) has always been mindful of our social responsibility. Each year we organize and support many philanthropic events that give back to our communities. In order to deliver the best support we can, we have created a Cape Fox Cares Program. We are caring for our local communities across the nation, wherever Cape Fox exists. We often support children, our military and first responders, and organizations we believe further and strengthen our communities. We strive to preserve our culture, educate our youth, and strengthen our communities because Cape Fox Cares.

The current pandemic has affected many across the nation. The Coronavirus’ impact, coupled with the close of our tourism season, had a devastating effect on Alaska and many of our Shareholders. Because we cherish our Shareholders and because Cape Fox Cares, On September 21, 2020, the CFC Board of Directors approved a 2020 Pandemic Disbursement for all Shareholders.
Did you know, during the worldwide pandemic a century ago, the 1918 Spanish flu, more people died per capita in Alaska than almost anywhere else in the world? It wiped out entire villages. While we fight this current pandemic, Alaska still has unique challenges that other places do not. In April, the U.S. Congress worked hard to provide families with relief. Congress passed the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act), and it included $8 billion for tribes within the $150 billion Coronavirus Relief Fund.
In 2016, there were approximately 5.6 million Native people in the United States; this represents 2% of the population. By 2060, it is projected there will be 10.2 million. Alaska is the state with the largest Native population. Yet, Natives have been undercounted in the 2020 Census. Why is this important? Imagine being able to have adequate resources to help keep Native people safe in a more equitable Alaska. This vision does not happen on its own. By participating in the 2020 Census, you are making sure Alaska Natives count.
