Foundation Halfway Through Pick. Click. Give. – But Not Even Halfway to Goal
As of February 15, 28 donors had pledged $1,625 to Doyon Foundation, leaving a $3,375 gap between pledges and the Foundation’s $5,000 fundraising goal.
“Your Pick. Click. Give. donations go directly to support the Foundation’s general scholarship fund, which helps offset the high cost of tuition and books for both full-time and part-time college students,” said Doris Miller, executive director of Doyon Foundation.
Pick. Click. Give. donations are down significantly from last year, negatively impacting nonprofits statewide. Less than 5 percent of Alaskans are choosing to Pick. Click. Give. when they complete their PFD applications.
“We know it is a tough year for a lot of Alaskans,” Miller acknowledged. “At the same time, we need to continue supporting the efforts of shareholders who are going to school with the goal of getting an education and improving the quality of life for themselves, their families and their communities. Because in the end, that benefits us all.”
Those who have already submitted a PFD application can easily add a Pick. Click. Give. contribution by logging back into their application at pfd.alaska.gov. Step-by-step instructions for making a Pick. Click. Give. donation are available here.
Donations of any amount are welcomed. “Every little bit moves us toward our goal,” Miller said.
