Anchorage, Alaska – Alaska nonprofits can now submit applications to participate in the 2017 Pick.Click.Give. campaign. Applications are accepted online and must be submitted annually. The deadline for filing an application is March 31, 2016.
“As Alaskans nonprofits search for new sources of funding, we’ve seen the list of eligible nonprofits grow each year,” said Jason Grenn, Pick.Click.Give. manager at The Alaska Community Foundation. “We’re excited to see another increase in the number of participants in 2017.” A record 640 nonprofits from across Alaska are currently participating in Pick.Click.Give. this year.

“Pick.Click.Give. has become a very popular way for Alaskans to share part of their PFD with a cause they care about. And the program has proven to be great tool for nonprofits to make a greater connection with their community as well.” said Grenn.
