Forms available online for ease of filing
ANCHORAGE, Feb. 6, 2012 – The Pick. Click. Give. program has announced the opening of the filing period for organizations that want to participate in the 2013 campaign. Applications are available at www.PickClickGive.org and can be filled out online. The deadline for filing an application is March 31, 2012.
“We want to make it as easy as possible for organizations to apply to be part of Pick. Click. Give.,” said Laurie Wolf, vice president of The Foraker Group, a partner in the program. “Organizations can fill out their information online and then simply print, sign, and submit a check to complete the process.”
For organizations that have been part of the program, many of the required documents are already loaded into the application. For organizations new to the program, the documents will be stored for future applications. Organizations are encouraged to verify all the existing information and change any that is not correct.
The application information is password protected and it is only used to qualify an organization for Pick. Click. Give. No information will be shared for any other purpose.
Wolf stressed that for an application to be valid, the organization must take the additional step of mailing in the signed form along with the filing fee. The online version does not constitute an official application.
To assist organizations, three webinars will be provided to walk applicants through the process and answer their questions. They are scheduled for Feb. 9 from 9-10:00 am, Feb. 22, 12-1:00 pm, and Mar. 5, 3-4:00 pm. To register, go to www.forakergroup.org and click on the Calendar tab.
