Sponsorships and Donations
We Can’t Do It With Out You
The Challenger Learning Center of Alaska is a vital and valuable educational resource for our state and is dedicated to maintaining the highest standards of academic excellence. CLCA is in a position to be the leading resource in STEM education for Alaska’s educators and home school organizations with a comprehensive curriculum aligned with state standards and grade-level expectations, combined with training, reference materials, and classroom support. Creating educational pathways and improving training for needed career fields for future Alaskan generations is our main goal.
Our operations are funded through earned revenue from our educational programs, community programs, facility rentals and training operations. Donations, both corporate and individual along with program sponsorships are a vital and necessary element to operations funding. It is not usual we receive funding from federal, state, borough, or city sources for operational costs; this is to include allocated school district funds.
All donations are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law. 501(c)(3) tax ID: 92-1761906.

Challenger actively pursues competitive grants and welcomes the opportunity to partner with like-minded organizations in the pursuit of projects designed to further our mission of inspiring youth in the pursuit of higher education in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM).
What non-profit is complete without at least one annual fundraiser? Here at Challenger, even fundraising is connected to hands-on learning and our infamous Geocache Rally was developed to showcase what we do and a chance to experience a small portion of how we work with students and trainees. More about the Geocache Rally.
Thank You to our Corporate Sponsors!
Year after year, Marathon Petroleum has supported The Challenger Learning Center of Alaska, by continuing to be a Platinum Sponsor. Their dedication to our program’s mission has successfully allowed hundreds of students to participate in simulated Mars missions; developing teamwork, problem-solving, research, and math skills, and building interests in multiple STEM careers. We thank Marathon Petroleum for the undeniable difference they make in these children’s lives and in our community.

“My class had a great time with the Challenger Center staff during our Bionics and Solar System 1 day virtual workshops! Madi, our instructor was knowledgeable and fun, and the curricular content was just the right amount of interest and challenge for my 4-6 grade learners. The lab kits that went with the programs were engaging and my students were amazed at their creations. A trip to the Challenger Center of Alaska is sure to be educational, interactive, and fun!”
