Since its inception, SWAMC has leveraged key partnerships that enhance the organization's ability to achieve its core mission. Public funding partners include the State of Alaska and United States government. As a 501 (c) 4 nonprofit organization, SWAMC's membership revenues form the basis of local matching contributions. The convergence of these unique partnerships serves as SWAMC's organizational foundation and the strength of its ongoing program of work.
SWAMC also draws on earned income and other sources of revenue to complete its funding picture.
