Pick.Click.Give is making an extremely positive impact on Tundra Women’s Coalition. Several weeks ago, TWC received a check for $8,900 in funds donated by Alaskans through their permanent fund dividends – the highest amount TWC has received since Pick.Click.Give began in 2009.
“I am so humbled by what Alaskans have pledged for TWC, and I can only thank folks and hope that for the sake of our program needs, that this level of support continues,” said Michelle DeWitt, TWC’s Executive Director. “This year’s Pick.Click.Give. program highlighted once again that people believe in our mission and efforts to both address and prevent family and sexual violence. For me, seeing more than 132 people who selected TWC as an organization to donate to this past year is valuable, regardless of how large or small the amount they were able to afford.”
DeWitt said TWC will use the 2011 contributions to support shelter needs and youth programs. “We are serving more people than in the past, yet our funds for items like laundry detergent, food or household supplies have stayed essentially the same or been reduced over the years,” said DeWitt. “We also offer many opportunities to program participants both in the shelter and outside the shelter, such as with our teen and children’s programs, that are not supported by grants or other revenue – so this gives us a resource for all these efforts you see us conducting in Bethel and the region,” said DeWitt.
Pick.Click.Give. is a charitable contribution program that recipients of the Alaska Permanent Fund Dividend can use to support organizations they care about in the state.
The Pick.Click.Give. campaign is already underway for 2012. The ability to donate is available to people at the time they apply for their PFD. The minimum donation is $25.
