Hospice of the Central Peninsula

Like people and businesses, many nonprofits statewide had to shut down offices, services, and events in March to help slow the spread of coronavirus. As things have opened back up, the nonprofits have a few more stressors than businesses may, including keeping up donations and volunteership.

Nonprofits in Alaska run the gamut from arts and culture-focused, such as the Kenai Fine Art Center, to life and safety, such as the Ninilchik Fire and Emergency Service Department and the peninsula’s two hospitals. While some make money through shops or contracts, helping to support their services, others rely on fundraising and community support. Those may be harder in the future.
