Pick. Click. Give.
Pick.Click.Give. is a safe and easy way to make a positive impact in the lives of Alaskans. You can choose a contribution anywhere from $25 to the full amount of your dividend.
In two short years, Pick.Click.Give. has helped generate nearly $1.5 million for Alaska causes.
The Pick.Click.Give. Charitable Contributions Program launched a new website this week that is the state’s largest site focused on the Alaska nonprofit sector.
The new website, www.pickclickgive.org, features in-depth information on the more than 400 organizations eligible for 2013 contributions.
The Department of Revenue this week released figures showing the lion’s share of charitable cash contributions made from Alaskans’ 2011 Permanent Fund Dividends through Pick. Click. Give. Top recipients include charities focused on hunger, homelessness, and Alaskans in emergency situations.
Close to 19,000 Alaskans gave $1.5 million this year, the third year of the program. That compares to a little over 5,000 people giving $545,000 in 2009, and 9,500 people giving $927,000 last year.
Alaskans can search for their favorite causes beginning today.
The Department of Revenue has released the list of Alaska organizations that will participate in the 2012 Pick. Click. Give. charitable contributions program. Beginning today, donors can plan for the organizations or causes they want to support during next year’s permanent fund dividend cycle by going to www.PickClickGive.org and clicking on Search 2012 Organizations.
