Criteria for Charitable Support

Ravn Alaska is committed to supporting charitable events and organizations in the communities that we serve. Through our in-kind donations (i.e. tickets on Ravn Alaska), we have been able to strengthen the work done by hundreds of charities and not-for-profit organizations.

Applications for charitable support must be submitted through Ravn Alaska’s online system (see link below). Ravn Alaska receives a significant volume of requests for charitable support, so all applications are evaluated based on the criteria below.

To be eligible for charitable support, applications must:

  • Be for a registered charity or not-for-profit organization
  • Be submitted with a minimum of 30 days’ notice prior to the event
  • Address a community need and provide direct impact to the community served
  • Support local needs in communities served by Ravn Alaska (a full list is available here)
  • Be complete

Ravn Alaska is unable to support:

  • National or International organizations or causes
  • Requests involving any level of financial support (i.e. anything other than tickets)
  • Individuals or teams (artists, actors, athletes, athletic teams, etc.)
  • Generic requests (requests must be clearly tailored for Ravn Alaska)
  • Events held outside of Ravn Alaska’s markets (no regional, national or global events)
  • Religious organizations
  • Third-party flow-through or umbrella organizations
  • Conferences
  • Endowments
  • Political organizations, for-profit organizations or other corporations’ community outreach initiatives

All applications must include the following:

  • The specific request for travel support from Ravn Alaska
  • Key event details, including venue, attendees, cause, etc.
  • An alignment with the Ravn Alaska brand
  • Category exclusivity (i.e. no other air transportation provider)
  • Full details of recognition and promotion offered to Ravn Alaska, including logo placement, printed materials and advertising, live mentions, social media, etc. if applicable
  • A list of sponsors who have committed to date
  • Event timeline, highlighting important deadlines (print, etc.)
  • A commitment to provide a written post-event summary (e.g. how much money was raised)
  • Note: Special consideration will be given to applications presenting the opportunity for Ravn Alaska to be incorporated into packages (hotel, restaurant and activity components must be confirmed before requesting Ravn Alaska flights to complement a package)

To submit a request, please complete the online application. Due to the number of requests Ravn Alaska receives, we are unable to process requests sent by email, mail or fax. While we cannot guarantee a response time, a member of the Charitable Support Committee will follow up with you once a decision has been reached.
