It’s that time of year again: Pick.Click.Give. That’s a statewide fundraising effort where Alaskans can give a portion of their Permanent Fund Dividend to a charity or non-profit of their choice when they file for it electronically. Alaskans can file from now through March 31. 

As part of that effort, Bethel Community Services Foundation will reward two local Pick.Click Give. donors. BCSF will choose the winners through a drawing; one winner will get $1,000, and the other $500. BCSF will also contribute a $1,000 grant and a $500 grant to the winners’ non-profit of their choice, or the winners can split those grants between two or more non-profits.

To qualify for the drawing, a local donor must choose to contribute to a non-profit based in the Yukon Kuskokwim Delta. The drawing will take place Dec. 3, 2019.
