As an organization, we are proud of our record in the community. Recently, the Foundation’s Executive Director, Shelley Ebenal, discovered that approximately $13,000 of Foundation donations were misappropriated. The Foundation discovered the problem early, then terminated a longtime employee and filed a criminal complaint against the former employee to protect the integrity of the donation process. Please be assured that all of the misappropriated funds were discovered, tracked and all donors have been given full credit for their donations. You may read or hear more about the situation in the coming weeks in the Fairbanks media. If you have any questions, now or in the future, please feel free to send a comment below or contact Shelley Ebenal at 458-6465.
