ANCHORAGE, August 24, 2011 – Alaskans who filed for the 2011 Permanent Fund Dividend (PFD) between January 1 and March 31 have seven more days to make Pick. Click. Give. charitable contributions. The PFD Division homepage will accept new contributions to over 400 nonprofit causes through August 31.
“The regular PFD filing season saw nearly 20,000 Alaskans pledging over $1.5 million,” said Jordan Marshall, special projects manager with Rasmuson Foundation. “These generous, optional gifts support important causes across the entire state and improve our quality of life.
“If you gave through Pick. Click. Give., thank you!” said Marshall. “If, however, you forgot or ran out of time or you simply want to make a safe and secure charitable contribution today, you can.”
The PFD Division homepage – www.pfd.state.ak.us – prominently features an “Add or Change a Charitable Contribution” link. Instructions for making an additional gift are available at www.PickClickGive.org Look for the “How to Donate” link in the QuickLinks section on the right hand side of the homepage.
2011 marks the third year for Pick. Click. Give., and each year Alaskans have increased the amount of donations they make through the program. Recent research shows that on average over half the donations are coming from people making their first philanthropic gift.
