Join the fight to secure the People’s money or lose what rightfully belongs to Alaskans.  Donate here to support a statewide media campaign to:
*INFORM Alaskans that the People own resource wealth and legislation on the PFD.

*ORGANIZE Alaskan voters to take action to stop the raid.

*BUILD STATEWIDE SUPPORT for restoring all the PFD funds cut from past PFDs and a public vote for an urgently needed constitutional amendment to protect the PFD'S current formula.

The Fund and PFD  have been a phenomenal success in saving, investing and sharing resource wealth for all Alaska residents for 35 years.  The Fund and PFD are under attack by government and business interests that want to spend the People's wealth without public consent.  Politicians ignored PFD law and the majority of Alaskans over the past 3 years when they regressively taxed each resident over $5,000 through PFD cuts.  This is just the beginning of the end of the PFD and Fund if Alaskans don’t work together to stop this theft.

The Permanent Fund Defenders is a non-partisan, educational non-profit group. There are no paid positions. We are led by Alaskans with deep roots in our state including several founders who created the Permanent Fund.  Our group welcomes all Alaskans, equal shareholders of resources in the Commons, who want to protect our assets and rights.  We are dedicated to protecting the Permanent Fund system for today and for future generations.  www.pfdak.com for more on the group.

We need Alaskans’ support for the following:
All funds go into communications and organizing to educate and mobilize Alaskans to defend our PFD and Fund.
This is an all volunteer group with no office. All funds will go to educational ads and outreach
to build support and stop the PFD raid. 

There is strength in numbers. JOIN us and DONATE here any amount you can afford to secure the PFD. Join our member list with your email.  Contact us to VOLUNTEER and go to work on this campaign. We need fundraisers, data entry and accounting help, media speakers, social media artists, and petition organizers. 

The Defenders plan to continue working on this through 2019 and as long as it takes to secure a PFD constitutional amendment!  Go to Permanent Fund Defenders’ website for more information on group leaders, media and the Permanent Fund. Website: www.pfdak.com  Facebook: www.facebook.com/pfdak

FEB 12, 2018 — ACTION ALERT!
Dear Alaskans,
Thanks again for your donation to protect the PFD.
Your support is needed now contacting legislators.
Here's how you can help. There is a bill called SJR1 in the AK Senate Judiciary Committee to give a vote to the People to lock the PFD in the AK Constitution where it is safe. The dividend is NOT safe in law where it continues to get cut.
Please email all the legislators if you are a registered voter and support this protection. Email them ALL at www.akleg.gov/poms
Or, just call and email these Judiciary Committee lawmakers to give Alaskans a hearing and a vote on this bill!
Senator.Pete.Kelly@akleg.gov - Ph. 907-465-3709
Senator.John.Coghill@akleg.gov - Ph. 907-465-3719
Senator.Mia.Costello@akleg.gov - Ph. 907-465-4968
Here's a link to a great column by Senator Bill Wielechowski explaining why the PFD needs protection in the AK Constitution or the People's dividend share will disappear. Only the AK voters can save the PFD. Link here ---- https://www.adn.com/opinions/2018/02/09/written-in-stone-protect-pfd-with-constitution/

Stop the raid on the People's money in 2018!
