In the COMMUNITY
Alaska Small Business in Philanthropy Award
The Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) Alaska Chapter recognized Petrotechnical Resources of Alaska at its annual Alaska Philanthropy Day awards luncheon in November, 2012. The AFP recognized outstanding local philanthropists, volunteers and businesses for their contributions to Alaska’s communities through their philanthropic efforts. The Small Business in Philanthropy Award was presented to PRA.
“Since its founding in 1997, Petrotechnical Resources Alaska (PRA) has not only employed experts in their field, but also very caring and philanthropic-minded individuals. Their company is dedicated to making the community a better place to live. Accordingly, their staff led by example both in giving and in volunteerism. PRA supports organizations that have a broad reach and assist in important initiatives to solve community problems.”
United Way of Anchorage
For more than 50 years, United Way has been a major force for change in our community. It was fourteen years ago that PRA conducted its first United Way campaign. Since then, our commitment and support for the work they do has grown. Last year our PRA Team raised over $33,000.00. We believe that supporting United Way is a very powerful way to advance the common good right here in Alaska.
PRA employees have always been very involved in the community as volunteers and contributors, and our combined giving to United Way and other charities has grown steadily over the years. We are proud to be an active participant in the effort to improve the wellbeing of fellow Alaskans who might need a hand from time to time. While most of us have been fortunate enough to enjoy prosperous and comfortable lives, we have probably all experienced some form of hardship, or have been touched by the experience of others who have faced personal crisis. The truth is that no one is immune to the risks of health problems, financial crisis, or natural disaster. Tom and Chantal Walsh recently completed their term as co-chairs of the Toqueville Society of the United Way of Anchorage and still remain very active in Toqueville and the United Way, volunteering their time and energy to support the goals of the United Way.
American Red Cross
PRA is proud to be a Corporate Partner, at the Good Samaritan level, of the American Red Cross of Alaska; the Red Cross and PRA are working together to build a stronger, safer Alaska. PRA has been a long-time supporter of the Red Cross Annual Real Heroes Breakfast where the American Red Cross of Alaska honors ordinary Alaskans for extraordinary acts of heroism throughout the state; PRA sponsors the Wilderness Rescue Award.
PRA’s relationship with Red Cross of Alaska goes beyond monetary commitment, as PRA Managing Partner Christina Livesey has served on the Board of Directors of Red Cross of Alaska for six years, and has Chaired the Board for two years in 2012 and 2013.
Habitat for Humanity
For the past six years, PRA has sponsored two summer interns to work on the Habitat for Humanity building project. The PRA sponsored intern program has been very valuable to Habitat for Humanity in meeting their goals, and it has been a tremendous experience for the sponsored students, as they gain knowledge in HSE, construction practices, and working with individuals and teams to reach challenging goals. PRA’s sponsorship program has allowed some very talented and dedicated students to receive meaningful summer work experience, has provided a much-needed resource to Habitat for Humanity, and has partially fulfilled PRA’s commitment to giving back to our community. PRA has also developed a relationship with the UAA Construction Management Program, and have had one or two students from that program working as interns.
PRA is a proud Corporate Sponsor of Abbott-O-Rabbit Little League.
