(Anchorage, Alaska) – Calista Corporation’s largest-ever Shareholder distribution of $12.1 million will occur on or before April 12 April 19.

This distribution is 7 percent larger than last year’s spring distribution of $11 million, despite the 1,195 additional Shareholders who enrolled in the past year.

The average Shareholder who owns 100 shares will receive an estimated $302. About 1 in 3 Shareholders is under 18 years old, and because 6 in 10 Shareholders live in the Yukon-Kuskokwim Region, about $7 million of the distribution will go into the Region.

“Our mission is to increase benefits and economic opportunities for our Shareholders,” said Willie Kasayulie, Calista Board Chair. “Many of our Shareholders face a high cost of living, and this distribution can help alleviate some of those expenses.”

Direct deposit and address updates must be received by April 2 April 9. Updates can be completed at, the free Shareholder portal.

Direct deposits will be made on or before April 12 April 19 and checks will be mailed on the same date for those without direct deposit. Shareholders in the Y-K Region should allow up to three weeks for mailed checks to arrive, weather permitting.

Shareholder distributions are typically made in the spring and the fall, subject to approval by Calista’s Board of Directors. This is the 44th distribution in Calista’s history, and total distributions to Shareholders now exceed $141.6 million.

Over 37,300 Shareholders will receive the 2024 Spring distribution. Calista is the largest regional Alaska Native Corporation by number of Shareholders.
