The following organizations receive First National's ongoing support:

Alaska School Activities Association: Competition, Harmony, Success

Competing, whether on the playing field, on stage, or in the classroom, teaches students how to set goals and achieve them. Succeeding in that process gives students a sense of pride, confidence and self esteem. First National is proud of our leadership role in helping the youth of our state succeed, such as our title sponsorship of ASAA state championships.

American Red Cross

First National Bank Alaska and its branches statewide are strong supporters of the American Red Cross of Alaska, with a focus on the Red Cross Disaster and Emergency Service programs, and the Real Heroes Awards, recognizing ordinary Alaskans who bravely face extraordinary circumstances.
