The Tebughna Foundation (pronounced tah-bow-na) was founded in September 2007 to Preserve, Enhance, Educate, & Serve the community of Tyonek and the shareholders of Tyonek Native Corporation. The Foundation received its 501c3 status from the Internal Revenue Service in June 2009, and is a registered Non-Profit Corporation in the State of Alaska.

The symbol for Tebughna Foundation is the headdress of sobriety for all cultures (thus the white, yellow, red, and black). By choosing sobriety, a person selects growth over decline and community over individual desire. The Foundation prides itself on hard work, integrity, and honor as is the example set by the greater community of Tyonek, Alaska and its ancestral descendants.
