Tigara Educational Foundation, Inc. (TEF) was established in 1997 to provide grant support for cultural and educational needs to the village of Point Hope, Alaska. To date, the foundation has given over $300,000 in grants. Tikigaq Corporation organizes an annual golf tournament in which all proceeds benefit TEF. In 2011, the golf tournament raised over $27,000. Because of these generous donations, the foundation is able to provide support to local students in Point Hope with scholarship money, in addition to making a generous donation to the Tikigaq High School Booster Club. TEF’s contributions truly benefit the community of Point Hope by providing educational opportunities for youth.
