Pick.Click.Give. has added a slew of nonprofits to its list, giving Alaskans an even harder decision when it comes to donating part of their Permanent Fund Dividend to a good cause.
Fifty-six nonprofits were added, including four based in Juneau: Alaska Folk Festival, Alaska Development Corporation, Friends of the Juneau-Douglas City Museum and Juneau Youth Wrestling Club, according to a document from Pick.Click.Give.
The addition brings the list to 512 organizations statewide, up from the 338 options that existed when the program began five years ago, according to a Pick.Click.Give. news release. Organizations must reapply each year to participate in the program.
“This year, about 26,000 Alaskans pledged a record $2.4 million from their PFDs,” the release stated. “The Pick.Click.Give. program started in 2009 with $545,000 in donations and has continued to grow each year.”
