The Annual Budget Process

Each October, we begin the process of developing the next year’s contributions budget. The proposed budget is based on (1) continuing contributions to organizations and programs with measurable positive results, (2) Northrim officer recommendations, and (3) new requests that meet our contributions focus areas. The contributions budget is generally approved in the first quarter of the year. We make very few contributions outside of the approved budget.

Requesting a Contribution from Northrim Bank

Our Vice President, Marketing & Communications Director coordinates all contributions so that we can ensure requests meet our strategic goals, maximize the value of our contribution dollars, and document each contribution for tax and planning purposes.

All requests must be made in writing and include our Donation Cover Sheet. We regret that we cannot respond to telephone requests, or to generic (“Dear Friends”) requests not specifically addressed to Northrim Bank. The deadline for applying for a contribution is November 15 of each year for the following year’s budget.

All requests should be addressed to:

Kari Skinner
VP - Marketing & Communications Director
Northrim Bank
3111 C Street
Anchorage, Alaska 99503

If you have questions about our contributions policies, or want to discuss how your organization’s programs fit our contributions focus, you can call Katie at (907) 261-3302, or email
