Thank you Mat-Su!

Note: we took a break last week from our regularly Monday blog post schedule as our Board convened for a couple of days. This week’s post looks back at day one of our Board meeting: a Mat-Su site visit.

The Mat-Su Valley rolled out the figurative red carpet last week as the Rasmuson Foundation Board of Directors and staff members traveled to the community to visit with partners and nonprofit organizations in the bustling communities of Wasilla and Palmer.
