Shareholder Forms

Gifting your Stock

To gift your stock, you need to complete the Gifting your Stock application. Any Shareholder can gift their stock as long as the following criteria are met:

  • The person gifting their stock must be 18 years of age or older;
  • The stock cannot be under custodianship, guardianship or court order for divorce or child support;
  • The person you are gifting your stock to must be a Native or descendant of a Native and be your lineal descendant.

For purposes of Stock Gifting, lineal descendant means child, grandchild, great-grandchild, niece, nephew, sister or brother. Brother and sister include half brothers and sisters, but do not include step-brothers and step-sisters. In the case of an adoption, the adopted descendant can receive a gift of stock if his/her adoption occurred before he/she reached the age of 18 and is recognized at law or in equity.

Shareholder Will Forms

Shareholders are strongly encouraged to keep a will on file with Afognak Native Corporation (Afognak). If Afognak does not have a will on file, it is required to follow Alaska State Intestate Law. This means that without a will, the State of Alaska will determine who will receive your shares. Shareholders can either submit a copy of their will to Afognak or complete an Afognak Native Corporation Will Form. Free notary services are available in the Anchorage and Kodiak offices for Shareholders.

Shareholder Estates

The Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act (ANCSA) provides that Native corporation stock is not required to go through probate in the court system. Afognak can work directly with the family members to help determine the proper heirs of the stock in accordance with any valid will the Shareholder may have that is applicable to the stock, or, if a will does not exist, under Alaska Statutes.

Family members should contact Afognak immediately when a Shareholder passes on.

Afognak needs two documents before it can begin processing a Shareholder estate:

  • a copy of the death certificate; and
  • a copy of the will, if a will exists. In many cases, Afognak may already have a will on file if the Shareholder has completed an Afognak Will Form. If a family is unable to locate a will, then a questionnaire must be completed.
