As the private foundation of Doyon, Limited, the Foundation serves the educational and cultural needs of Doyon s shareholders and their children by providing post-secondary scholarships, advancing traditional Native knowledge, and working to increase Native student performance levels. Since inception, the Foundation has awarded more than $6 million in scholarships.

3 Dear Supporters, In the past year, Doyon Foundation took a remarkable step forward with the launch of our Language Revitalization Program, a comprehensive, region-wide program to capture, preserve, share and maintain Athabascan languages. Doyon, Limited supported the birth of this program with a generous $150,000 grant last fall. This program addresses an urgent need. According to the Alaska Native Language Center, there are less than 500 speakers of the nine Athabascan languages in the Doyon region. There are also insufficient numbers of qualified Athabascan language teachers, and no solid, region-wide language revitalization effort to provide easily accessible language learning programs. Perhaps most importantly, research has shown that the ability to speak one s language is essential to strong self-identity, self-esteem and the preservation of cultural beliefs, values and traditions. Also new in 2012, we were pleased to welcome two new Foundation staff members. Sommer Stickman joined us as an administrative assistant, and Maurine Isaacson became our new scholarship program Doris Miller manager in They are both originally from Nulato, and Maurine is one of our alumni, graduating last May with her BBA. During our 2012 strategic planning session, we set goals and an action plan for the next two years. Goals included continual improvement of internal operations, diversifying and growing revenue streams, developing the framework for the language program, and increasing student outreach. Through this new program, we now have the ability to find ways for shareholders and other interested individuals to learn their language. The new language program, working in tandem with our scholarship program, also allows us to more fully fulfill our mission to provide educational, career and cultural opportunities to enhance the identity and quality of life for Doyon shareholders. This effort wouldn t be possible without our language revitalization committee, an active group of volunteers. While the program just officially launched, these dedicated individuals have spent the past four years conducting research, developing relationships, making plans, and working to make the program a reality. We are deeply thankful for them, as well as the Doyon, Limited and Doyon Foundation boards for their commitment to language revitalization. We look forward to working on these goals in the coming year, and providing you with an update on our progress in next year s annual report. We also invite you to stay informed throughout the year by visiting our website, subscribing to our blog and e-newsletter, and liking us on Facebook Sincerely, Doris Miller Executive Director 3

During her May through August internship, Maudrey did everything and anything involving the Morris Thompson Memorial Golf Classic, which took place June 14 and 15 in Fairbanks. Maudrey, originally from Koyukuk, is a 2011 graduate of Nenana High School. After two semesters at the University of Alaska Anchorage, Maudrey transferred this fall to the University of Alaska Fairbanks, where she is studying nursing. One thing I am most positive about is that I am going to graduate from college with a degree in nursing. That will allow me to give back to our people and work in a field that I enjoy, Maudrey said. Maudrey said she interned at the Foundation to gain work experience and to learn about Doyon but there ended up being several added benefits. This internship allowed me to branch out into new ideas for my own future, she said. I ve been thinking about a minor in business to accompany my major in nursing. She also gained experience and confidence in her abilities. I Maudrey Kriska used to be scared to answer the phone when I first started and now I can talk to anybody without hesitation. I can t put it all into words, but working at the Foundation has helped me grow into a better, brighter individual, Maudrey said. I d like to thank Doyon Foundation for the wonderful opportunity that they ve given me and the great experience I ve gained over the months. Maudrey is the daughter of Hugh and Karen Kriska, and the granddaughter of Hugh Kriska, Sr. and the late Eleanor Kriska, and the late Maudrey and Henry Sommer. She has six siblings, Trina, Shanda, Leon, Cassandra, Julie, and Hugh III (Binka). 5

In addition, they continue to help with our student dinners, delivering snacks to students during finals week, and making reminder calls about upcoming scholarship deadlines.

Felisha, a Doyon Foundation scholarship recipient, was able to do this through the University of Phoenix Online. I chose to do my higher education completely online because I wanted to be able to work full time, and still have a flexible schedule. The major benefit from doing it online was being able to get it done quickly and at my own pace, she said. Felisha, who is originally from Galena and now lives in North Pole, completed the coursework for her second degree a bachelor s in business administration last spring. She obtained an associate s degree in business two years ago.

Felisha says the biggest challenge was not having instructors or counselors she could talk to in person.

The other challenge she faced was finances. But don t expect her to stop there. Felisha, who works as a program assistant with the Fairbanks Alcohol Safety Action Program at Fairbanks Native Association, already has plans to work on a degree in criminal justice. My goal for the future is to learn as much as possible, even if that means to obtain one or two more degrees, she said. I have come to realize that furthering your education can be very expensive, and with the help of the Doyon Foundation, it has definitely made a difference. When I go for my next degree, I hope to have the support of the Doyon Foundation again, said Felisha, who is the daughter of Richard Esmailka and Christine Cooper, and the granddaughter of the late Edgar Sam Billy Esmailka, the late Wilhelmina Yaska, Paddy Yaska, Claude Cooper and Jean Keogh. 7
