The PFD Charitable Contributions Program, more commonly known as Pick.Click.Give., provides a reliable way for Alaskans to support eligible non-profit organizations including United Way of Southeast Alaska and several of our partner agencies. Created by the Alaska State Legislature in 2008, the program allows Alaska filing for their PFD online to donate all or a portion of their PFD to the campuses of the University of Alaska, community foundations, and eligible charitable and educational organizations. After a three-year pilot project, Pick.Click.Give. is now a permanent part of the PFD program. In just a few short years, Pick.Click.Give. has helped generate nearly $1.5 million for Alaska causes.
By giving to United Way of Southeast Alaska or one of our partner agencies through this program, you join others in becoming an important force in bettering our communities in Southeast Alaska and across the state. Consider a gift today! If every Alaskan in Southeast Alaska takes this step—think of the power we have together. Use Pick.Click.Give. to make your first gift or to increase contributions to United Way of Southeast Alaska or one of our partner agencies. You may give anywhere from $25 up to the full amount of your dividend to eligible nonprofits. Also, every Alaskan who files online for a PFD dividend can give through this program, so every member of your family had the option to participate. This is an excellent way to help teach your children about the value of giving to the community.
Interested in doubling your gift? BP, Wells Fargo, Rasmuson Foundation and The Foraker Group all offer an employee match program. Don't forget to turn in your gift receipt to get the match for your nonprofit. Ask your company or organization today if they will create a matching gift program.
