The deadline to file for your permanent fund dividend was this past Sunday. According to data provided by the Alaska Department of Revenue Permanent Fund Dividend Division, 26,093 Alaskans pledged $2,445,450 to Alaska nonprofit organizations. Total contributions grew 10 percent over last year with almost 3,000 more Alaskans donating through Pick.Click.Give. than in 2012.
As we’ve reported, the Pick Click Give program added a financial bonus for participating non profit organizations, Heather Beaty is the Program Manager for the Pick Click Give program…
Beaty: “This year, we’re offering some incentives to the non-profits who do the most to increase the fundraising they do through Pick.Click.Give. Organizations that are new to the list this year are eligible to win an additional $2,500 if they are the new organization who raises the most money, and three organizations will be eligible to win $5,000 for increasing, percentage-wise, the most money raised over their total from last year.”
Locally, the Kenai Watershed Forum will be awarded with $5,000 for showing the most growth over their 2012 pledge totals
