Akima Wins Outstanding Small Business Award from NASA

Akima ’ s biggest silent auction event drew in record funds as it brought together viewers from across the Akima portfolio of companies .

Each year , Akima hosts multiple fundraisers that benefit causes in the NANA region . Past fundraisers have raised money for Maniilaq Association ’ s Suicide Prevention Program , Aqqaluk Trust , Arctic Circle Search & Rescue and for Elder care kits during the first year of the pandemic . Akima employees dig deep into their own pockets to contribute to each of these fundraisers .

This past holiday season , Akima employees surpassed donations from previous efforts and raised a total of $ 57,669 to benefit KOTZ Radio . They learned about the critical services KOTZ provides in the NANA region , serving as a vital line of communication for news , alerts and updates in northwest Alaska .
A silent auction was broadcast virtually to Akima employees around the world . Departments and individuals within Akima donated gift baskets , which were then available to bid on during the auction . Proceeds from auction items raised $ 38,064 of the total , with the remainder coming from $ 7,140 in direct donations and $ 11,915 in raffle ticket sales .
Mamie Karmun , a NANA shareholder and Akima ’ s director of shareholder programs , leads the fundraiser each year .
“ Thank you to all employees who participated in our annual holiday silent auction ,” said Mamie , “ whether it was by generously donating an item or basket , bidding on items , purchasing raffle tickets or donating directly to KOTZ . Our donation will help the station with their daily broadcasts .”
