Every November, Minnesotans come together to support the causes that make our state a great place to call home. Give to the Max Day, Minnesota’s annual giving holiday, is celebrating 15 years on Thursday, Nov. 16. We can’t wait to share it with you.
And while Give to the Max raises millions of dollars for nonprofits and schools each year, it’s much more than a fundraising campaign: it’s a reminder that when we come together to support the causes we love, we can do millions of dollars worth of good together — $10, $50, and $100 at a time. Donors have given more than $290 million to more than 10,000 organizations since the first Give to the Max Day in 2009. And those dollars translate to impact beyond our wildest dreams.
You may have participated in Give to the Max before, and for that, we thank you! This year might be the beginning of your giving story. Either way, we hope you’ll celebrate 15 years of generosity, in Minnesota, as we work together to ignite generosity and grow giving this November. Here are a few ways to join in the festivities:
- Search for favorite causes and discover new ones.
Give to the Max is quick, easy, and fun! Simply visit GiveMN.org from Nov. 1-16 to search for nonprofits and schools by name, category, location, and more. With thousands of organizations to choose from, you can find a variety of causes and make multiple donations with one, easy checkout!
- Maximize the power of your gift.
When you donate any amount on GiveMN.org Nov. 1-16, you could see your generosity boosted! GiveMN is awarding more than $100,000 to participating nonprofits and schools by drawing random gifts and granting a “Golden Ticket,” with prizes ranging from $500 to $10,000!
- Support organizations making big impacts in your community.
In every community across our state, nonprofits and schools help our friends, neighbors, and loved ones meet basic needs, find homes for four-legged friends, and improve our lives through education, art, sports, and parks. For many small and medium organizations, Give to the Max Day might be their biggest or only fundraiser. Your gifts help to power their work and impact all year long.
Give to the Max is a testament to what can happen when tens of thousands of generous people like you and I share whatever we’re able with causes we love. On behalf of the thousands of nonprofits and schools working to make Minnesota brighter, we are so grateful for your support.
Visit GiveMN.org as your partner in giving and follow along throughout November for updates as we celebrate 15 years of generosity.
