Small Business Loans

Our small business loan program is focused on stimulating economic growth for Alaska based businesses by providing reasonable financing when other institutions can't or won't.


We pride ourselves on lending support to all Alaskans who's aspirations and ambitions lead them to the path of entrepreneurship.


What separates us from other lenders is that our staff owns and operates multiple businesses throughout Alaska and bring an experienced process and view to the proper way of establishing a business that can flourish and benefit the state.


Our staff can lend coaching and consulting for business structuring, taxes, advertising, and more. It is our goal to help every interested Alaskan in shaping and forming their idea into the most profitable business possible.

When donating to 49th Forward you know that you are supporting an organization that cares deeply about Alaska and holds the development of the villages, neighborhoods, communities, cities, and state as a whole, in the highest regards imaginable. 

 Our fundraising is done in the form of engaging community activities across the state, seminars and educational classed, raffles for items and opportunities, and so much more. 

We also apply for every available grant that applies to our mission statement to ensure the best chance of tax payers having assurance that their contribution is having the greatest benefit. 

 We have programs such as the Permanent Mutal Fund of Alaska (PMFA) That all Alaskan residents have the option to donate to while also being afforded a say in all ways that the fund Is invested in the form of member voting. This is more beneficial than the Alaska Permanent Fund Dividen in many ways. First of all, every single person who contributes get an equal say in all investment decisions of the funds instead of a small office of individuals. Second the payouts are guaranteed for each member and are not subject to fluctuation based on political environments, its your money, your investment, and your say. It's that simple! 

However the fund will take time to build to be comparable to the (PFD) through fundraising and investing we know we will get it to that level and even surpass it because it's 100% owned by Alaskans and only for the benefit of Alaskans, no large companies. 

Whale Tail coming out of the water


We can all agree that every human deserves and is afforded the right to an opinion and belief in Alaska and the United States.


At 49th Forward, we value that more than most. Our POLLS section is focused on providing every Alaskan with a reliable, unbiased, and credible 3rd party avenue that allows all residents to lend their voice and opinion on important topics, issues, and legislation that is current topic of focus and discussion in Alaska and even in the country as a whole.


We believe that options freedom and we want to provide an open, honest, transparent, and unbiased forum for people to vote outside of the official state or federal government. We value what every Alaskan has to say and we will advocate to other organizations and entities to consider and apply information and data derived from our polls. We want your voice to be heard and heard well!

We live by our mission statement at 49th Forward. Most of our funding is focused on our grants, scholarships, and business loans in order to establish Alaska as a leader in renewable energy manufacturing and exportation, but before any of that we are diligently working on providing sustainability to all communities within Alaska in the form of renewable energy implementation as well as  sustainable agriculture and food production. 

 We live and breath all things Alaska. Here at 49th Forward we know the real issues that impact Alaskans whether internal or external. There are many groups and communites within Alaska that have little resources and support, and even less support in recent days, even though we have some of the greatest natural resource capability in the world. We will bring support, technology, and industry to these communities so they can maintain their way of living while preserving their heritage and thriving as a community.
