Richard L. and Diane M. Block Foundation Empowers Youth and Culture with a $30,000 Donation to the 2024 Arctic Winter Games

The Mat-Su 2024 Arctic Winter Games proudly announces a generous donation of $30,000 from the Richard L. and Diane M. Block Foundation. This significant contribution is a testament to the Foundation's commitment to enhancing the quality of life in Alaska, focusing on youth leadership, cultural enrichment, and community upliftment.

Celebrating its inaugural hosting of the Arctic Winter Games, the Mat-Su Borough is primed to welcome an international assembly of athletes and artists from across the Circumpolar North. The event is set to be a cultural extravaganza that brings together over 2,000 participants, 2,000 volunteers, and 4,000 visitors and media personnel from around the globe, creating infinite opportunities for cultural exchange​.

The support from Richard L. and Diane M. Block Foundation aligns perfectly with our values of Resilience, Inclusivity, Strength, and Excellence (RISE) and helps us to unite and celebrate our community while connecting with our northern neighbors.
