GCI Gives

GCI gives back to the community through direct donations, in-kind services, and products totaling an estimated $2 million per year.

The GCI GIVES Partnership

Our giving is focused on cultural arts and innovation; education; healthy communities; youth; animals; diversity and inclusion; and public safety.

Our application period opens each October and closes before year end. Simply tell us more about your organization and needs while the application period is open by completing our application form.

But we give more than just cash donations. We also partner with nonprofits to provide in-kind services and tech donations and amplify these joint efforts across our social media channels to generate additional coverage and exposure. From supporting the Iditarod to the Alaska Student Activities Association, we give back to every community we serve across the state.


Our online application is open October 1 - November 15.
