Which civic organizations help with disability funding?
There are numerous civic organizations and service clubs that may provide financial assistance or help with the purchase of assistive technology. A personal contact within the group is most helpful. However, if you don’t personally know someone in the organization, can contact them by telephone or send a letter of inquiry and explain what you are seeking.
This is not an all inclusive list of organizations that might provide financial assistance. If you know other organization that should be added to the list, please contact ATLA with the information.
Programs include: Scholarships, Veterans Services, Drug Education and Youth activities. There are many Elks Lodges located in communities around Alaska.
