More than 400 nonprofit organizations will be receiving their donations from the 2012 Pick. Click. Give. campaign by the end of October and Alaskans gave in record numbers this year. This Spring, after the close of the filing period for the annual Pemanent Fund Dividend (PFD), over 23,000 individuals had pledged more than 37,000 gifts totaling more than $2,200,000. Support for quality child care and early education came in gifts totalling just over $2,000 to thread, Alaska's Child Care Resource & Referral (CCR&R) agency.
“The impact of donations from Pick. Click. Give. ripples through communities in many ways,” said Debbie Bitney, Director of the Permanent Fund Division. “More hungry families and children can be fed, more animals can be rescued, public broadcasting stations can enhance their service, more abused women and their children can be sheltered. There’s a long list causes that are being served through the generosity of Alaskans who give through Pick. Click. Give.”
Top recipients of gifts this year were Bean’s Café, KSKA/KAKM/APRN, Food Bank of Alaska, and Alaska Dog and Puppy Rescue.
The 2012 campaign went over its goal by $200,000 and represented an increase of nearly 50 percent over the 2011 total.
In 2011, 19,000 Alaskans raised $1.5 million for nonprofits, community foundations and the University of Alaska campuses through Pick. Click. Give. In 2010, 9,500 Alaskans donated a total of $927,000 and in 2009, the program’s first year, 5,500 people gave $545,000.comments powered by Disqus
