Homer benefits from Pick.Click.Give.

The filing period for the Alaska Permanent Fund closed on March 31. We have already learned that more than 23,000 Alaskans pledged $2.2 million through Pick.Click.Give. in 2012. This represents an increase of nearly 50 percent over last years total.

The PFD charitable check-off program has grown each year and is really starting to have an impact on the nonprofit sector. Locally 14 organizations, including the Homer Foundation, garnered $49,350 through Pick.Click.Give. These organizations enrich our community in many ways, from feeding our hungry to feeding our souls.

Thanks to the Pick.Click.Give. program for providing a safe and easy way to support the causes that we care about in our communities, and thanks to the 66 individuals who chose to support the Homer Foundation. We wont know who any of these generous donors are until PFD checks are mailed in October. Until then, thanks to everyone who participated.
