Shareholder Relations


In pursuit of success for the benefit of our shareholders

As an Alaska Native corporation, the wellbeing of our shareholders is at the heart of all we do. Powered in large part by the financial success of our subsidiaries, BBNC delivers a combination of distributions and benefits that promotes the long term success of our shareholders. For BBNC, investing in our shareholders’ lives means sustaining the future of our region—and enriching our Native way of life.

The benefits of being a BBNC shareholder go beyond the quarterly distributions paid (the first Friday of March, June, September and December each year) from the financial success of BBNC and its subsidiaries. Because we want all our shareholders to grow and thrive, we also provide:

  • Employment opportunities: BBNC upholds a shareholder hiring preference across all our companies
  • Employment resources and training opportunities through BBNC’s Shareholder Development Department
  • Internships and job shadowing opportunities
  • Elder’s distribution: Original shareholders who are at least 65 years old receive an additional $125 each quarter
  • Memorial Fund: Payments of up to $1,500 for shareholders and up to $750 for spouses or descendants are available to defray funeral expenses after they pass away
  • Access to higher education and vocational education scholarships and short-term vocational training funds through the BBNC Education Foundation
  • Assistance with various applications, including BBNC shareholder forms and connection to community resources
  • Special prize drawings
