This fee is directed to The Alaska Community Foundation, which allows nonprofit organizations to participate in the statewide marketing campaign while minimizing the administrative costs otherwise associated with fundraising.
Starting in 2015, 7% of donations collected by nonprofit organizations were designated by the legislature to be used to fund the Pick.Click.Give. program. These fees contribute to the sustainability of the program while making it possible for smaller and more remote nonprofit organizations to benefit from the marketing campaign. The fee covers the cost for the statewide program marketing, nonprofit tools and resources, and minimal program marketing. See our Frequently Asked Questions for more information.
Thank you for choosing Pick.Click.Give. Please see the frequently asked questions in the following areas: Donor Information, Program Administration.
You will be prompted to enter your name, social security number, and date of birth. Once you click “Enter,” your PFD application details will show your PCG charitable contributions to date and provide a button to “change” your contributions. Follow the prompts to add new donations. As long as the applicant has applied for their PFD online by March 31, additions, withdrawals, or adjustments may be made until August 31.
During the summer of 2013, participating nonprofit organizations were surveyed and the overwhelming majority of nonprofit organizations stated that statewide coordination was essential to their own PCG success, and assessing a fee to organizations as a percentage of funds raised was the fairest and equitable method. In 2014, the Alaska State Legislature ratified this concept and it became a permanent part of the program. These fees are collected by the PFD Division and transferred to The Alaska Community Foundation to help support the statewide campaign, provide support to the participating nonprofit organizations, and administer the program.
Donors will be credited for 100% of their tax-deductible contribution, and the 7% fee is assessed at the aggregate level, allowing nonprofit organizations to participate in the statewide marketing campaign while minimizing the administrative costs otherwise associated with fundraising. For example, if a nonprofit organization receives contributions from hundreds of donors, they only need to process a single transaction instead of managing each check individually.
