While most parents and students are just thinking about getting back to school, high school students should always be thinking about applying to as many scholarships as possible. The more money that can be earned through scholarships means less loans to pay back later.

Overall, $3.3 million was raised for Alaska nonprofits through Pick. Click. Give. this year – a new record for the seven-year program. Donations to the Foundation were up as well, from $5,475 in 2014 to $5,625 in 2015.

Although the 2015 PFD application period has closed, it’s not too late to make a Pick. Click. Give. contribution. Simply visit the PFD webpage and click the “add or change your Pick. Click. Give. donation” button on the right-hand side of the page.

When you Pick. Click. Give. to Doyon Foundation, you are supporting the future – the future of current students like our 295 spring scholarship recipients, the future of our children like Caleb Xavier Abraham Smoke, and the future of our communities, state, nation and world!

Caleb is an excellent example of the importance of supporting our future. When his mom asked what he wants to be when he grows up, Caleb said, “A police officer to protect and keep us safe.” Perhaps one day Caleb will be the recipient of a Law Enforcement Academy scholarship!

Donations received through Pick. Click. Give. go to the Foundation’s general scholarship fund, which awards basic scholarships to part-time and full-time students. During the 2013 – 2014 academic year, we awarded 523 scholarships totaling more than $408,000.
