How Pick.Click.Give. makes a difference
The major goal of The CIRI Foundation (TCF) is to encourage the education and career development of TCF’s Alaska Native beneficiaries through post-secondary scholarships and grants, research and other education projects. A second goal is to perpetuate and enhance the heritage of Cook Inlet region’s Alaska Native people through programs that foster appreciation and understanding by the general public. The CIRI Foundation strives to support continued living traditions through selected heritage publications and media productions that enhance appreciation and understanding of Alaska Native cultures among Alaska Natives and all people. You can enter to “Double Your Dividend” by making a charitable donation through Pick.Click.Give. Your PFD application can be amended here through August 31.
