Support Doyon Foundation when you apply for your PFD by March 31 

Alaskans have the very unique opportunity to support the nonprofits and causes they care about by making a Pick. Click. Give. pledge when they complete their PFD applications. The application deadline for the 2019 PFD is nearly here – applications are due Sunday, March 31. If you’ve already applied for your PFD, it is easy to log back in to your account and add a Pick. Click. Give. pledge.

When you Pick. Click. Give. to Doyon Foundation, you are supporting not one, but two important areas: scholarships for students, as well as efforts to revitalize the endangered Alaska Native languages of the Doyon region.

Since 1989, Doyon Foundation has been providing educational, career and cultural opportunities to enhance the identity and quality of life for Doyon shareholders. At last count, we have awarded more than $10.6 million in scholarships to thousands of students! Last year alone, we awarded $820,870 to 412 students pursuing traditional four-year degrees, as well as certificates, associate degrees, graduate studies and vocational training. Visit our blog to read profiles featuring students who have benefitted from our generous Pick. Click. Give. donors.

In addition to our robust scholarship program, we have undertaken a leadership role in the revitalization of the Doyon region languages. Of the 20 Alaska Native languages, 10 of them are based in the Doyon region – and are all endangered. Through our language revitalization program and Doyon Languages Online project, we are working with language speakers and interested learners to ensure that our Native languages survive and thrive for future generations.

Last year, 52 donors contributed a total of $3,200 to Doyon Foundation. Help us exceed this amount by making your Pick. Click. Give. pledge today! Remember – the deadline to apply for your 2019 PFD is March 31, and if you’ve already applied, it’s not too late to add a Pick. Click. Give. gift!
