Groundbreakers are individuals and businesses committing $10,000 or more toward the project, payable over a span of three years, with the intent of getting shovels in the ground as soon as possible.

You are invited to be part of Juneau’s history as a visionary community member committed to our long-range future: Become a Groundbreaker today and be:

  • Recognized in a special, permanent Groundbreaker display in the building.
  • Invited to a Groundbreaker special event at groundbreaking.
  • Invited to an annual Groundbreaker party in the new Capital Civic Center 
  • Receive a gift of a limited numbered artist print being commissioned by the Juneau Arts and Humanities Council for Groundbreakers, as commemorative of their contribution to the this legacy project.
