(Anchorage, Alaska) – Chugach Alaska Corporation (Chugach) CEO Gabriel Kompkoff has joined the Board of Directors for the Alaska Community Foundation (ACF), a nonprofit organization aimed at fostering philanthropic endeavors across the state to strengthen Alaska’s community.

“I have admired the Community Foundation model since first learning about it and have been impressed with the progress made at ACF over the past few years, now with $80 million in donor assets,” said Kompkoff. “Chugach does its part to support our region while ACF strives to support all of Alaska.”
