In recognition of this gift, the atrium in the Capital Civic Center will be known as the Fred K. Koken Atrium.

“This is wonderful news! His personal support for this project speaks volumes as we approach other grantors and donors for funds. We are thrilled that this main portion of the facility will carry the name of a person well-known for his contributions to Juneau – from his natural science museum to support for arts and cultural events to the gift of “The Librarian” sculpture for the Mendenhall Valley Library. It is such an honor that the atrium will bear his name: a reminder and a call to us all of what a difference one person can make in our community.”
Nancy DeCherney, The Partnership Fundraising Manager

“The Staff and the Board of the Foundation are proud to be involved in this partnership that supports programs and projects such as yours.” 
Juneau Community Foundation Executive Director Amy Skilbred
