Three CIRI-founded nonprofits benefitted from charitable gifts made by Alaskans through the
Permanent Fund Dividend (PFD) Pick.Click.Give. program. The Alaska Native Heritage Center (ANHC), Alaska Native Justice Center and Koahnic Broadcast Corp. participated in the program, which makes it easy for Alaskans applying for their PFD online to donate part or all of their dividends to eligible nonprofits.
“Participating in the Pick.Click.Give. program is a great way for Alaskans to show that they care about nonprofits that do meaningful work in Alaska communities,” said Annette Evan Smith, ANHC president and CEO. “The Center is grateful for the support it has received through Pick.Click.Give. Contributions are an investment in tomorrow’s leaders and directly support initiatives such as ANHC’s high school program and outreach programs that educate public school students about the diversity of Alaska’s Native cultures.”
ANHC is a cultural and educational center that provides cross-cultural exchanges, workshops, educational programs, cultural events, demonstrations and guided tours of its authentic village sites. The Alaska Native Justice Center provides legal advocacy, referral, support and civil pro se services to Alaska Native and American Indian people involved with Alaska’s civil and criminal justice system. Koahnic Broadcast Corp. is a media center headquartered in Anchorage that broadcasts Native voices to Alaska and the nation.
Pick.Click.Give was created by the Rasmuson Foundation in 2009. Learn which nonprofit organizations are participating in 2012 by visiting www.pickclickgive.org.
