Become a Sponsor

Financial support is essential to providing interactive education programs, facilitating active-engagement opportunities with world-class speakers, and inspiring Alaskans to be involved with the world at home and abroad. We are passionate about partnering with organizations to help spread our mission and cultivate the next generation of informed global citizens through meaningful opportunities. Below are various ways to help support AKWorld.

Annual Supporting Sponsorships

Support AKWorld in its goal to “Bring the World to Alaska” though engaging and informational programs featuring world-class speakers. Annual Supporting Sponsors play a vital role in allowing AKWorld to host high-level experts to provide international affairs programs to Alaska. Additionally, Annual Supporting Sponsors help support student programs by providing opportunities for students to meet in-person with our speakers in their classrooms and at AKWorld programs at no cost to the students.
