Tanya Dumas joined the Foundation in March 2019 as a program officer, a role in which she weaves together program management expertise, operational skills and a commitment to equity to connect Alaskans with funding sources. She oversees the Tier 1 small grant program and also handles large grants and program-related investments.

Tanya’s past experience includes leading nationwide strategic program operations for the Indian Child Welfare team at Casey Family Programs in Seattle and practicing corporate litigation at an international law firm in San Francisco.

Tanya is drawn to community-created, cross-sector approaches that align policies, systems, services and conditions for positive results. She currently serves on the board of the All Alaska Pediatric Partnership and is an appointed commissioner to the Anchorage Census Complete Count Commission.

Tanya has a law degree from New York University School of Law and a bachelor’s in gender and international development from Lewis & Clark College. She is an alum of the Puget Sound area’s Leadership Tomorrow program. Originally from Sweet Home, Oregon, and raised in the Sierra Nevadas of California, she loves both rain and snow and is enthusiastic about exploring Alaska with her family.
