Members Making Change

Each June, the Alaska USA Foundation conducts the Members Making Change fundraiser, and this year will be no exception. Throughout the month, members will have the opportunity to make a donation online or while visiting a branch.

The funds collected help to support non-profit organizations with programs benefiting children, veterans, and active-duty military and their families.

Since 2003, the Alaska USA Foundation has distributed more than $2.5 million in support of its partner organizations. As we continue to work through the pandemic, the need in each of our communities has never been greater. With your support, the Alaska USA Foundation will be able to assist and partner with community organizations that provide critical services to our communities.

It’s a great time to refinance

With home loan rates as low as they are, it’s a great time to think about refinancing your mortgage. You might be able to lower your monthly payment, pay off your loan faster, or even do a cash-out refinance to pay for a home remodel. 

A smart way to save on insurance

Have you considered bundling your insurance? Combining multiple policies under the same carrier—like home, auto, motorcycle, or life insurance—can be an overlooked source of savings for many people.
