Donations from Alaskans’ PFDs make a difference for nonprofits working to support indigenous people across the state. If you haven’t selected a charity to support yet through Pick. Click. Give., here are eight nonprofits that are improving Alaskan communities through preserving tradition, expanding access for people with disabilities, art, education, culture, history and more. After you get your PFD, you can make a donation on Oct. 8 to mark Indigenous People’s Day.
