The Prestige Program is designed to serve the lifestyle and financial needs of our members 55 years and older. You might be over 55, but you've still got a lot of living to do. Spirit of Alaska respects and recognizes your life experiences and wisdom.
All Spirit of Alaska Federal Credit Union members 55 and older are eligible to join Prestige program. See below for more info.
The Prestige Program was developed to provide a social outlet for our senior members and its success depends on your involvement. We need more members, more deposits, and more engagement from you. Please consider bringing a non-member friend.

Past events from 2016
Glow Putt Jan 19th, 2016
Prestige members played around in the black light at Glow Putt Alaska. This was a great event for families to come get together in the warmth and play some games. Prestige members received a free round while their families got to play at a reduced price.
Yukon Quest Feb 6th, 2016
We were proud to sponsor this year's Yukon Quest, in response to our involvement we were able to get free VIP passes to our Prestige Members. Everyone was able to go behind the scenes at this year's race and were able to meet the mushers, their brave dogs and the staging area not available to the general public. This was a fantastic time and everyone had a great time at this event.
Casino Night Feb 12th, 2016
Spirit of Alaska FCU was able to team up with Raven Landing for our Casino night. We brought Las Vegas to our little town for an evening of fun.

Sponsoring this year's Ice Alaska allowed us to get free entrance tickets to our Prestige members this year for Spirit of Alaska FCU Day.
