'Give to the Max Day' Returns to Raise Money for Local, MN Nonprofits

GiveMN has raised more than $50 million for over 6,700 Minnesota nonprofits and has made national news with "Give to the Max Day."

“Give to the Max Day” returns for its fourth year on Nov. 15, 2012 and Minnesotans will once again be challenged to raise as much money as possible for nonprofit organizations and schools in 24 hours.

GiveMN has raised more than $50 million for over 6,700 Minnesota nonprofits. The success of Give to the Max Day has spurred similar fundraising days for states across the country. Give to the Max Day was created to increase giving to nonprofits across the state.

Donations on Give to the Max Day can be made through GiveMN.org, a charitable giving website that helps Minnesotans discover, support and engage with nonprofits and schools. The day for donations begins at midnight on Thursday, Nov. 15 and ends at midnight on Friday, Nov. 16.

Search for more than 40 St. Michael and Albertville schools and nonpprofits here. You can search by city, zip code and organization.

Organizations include (and this is just a sampling): STMA Youth Baseball, STMA Soccer Assocation, Beebe Lake Improvement Association, school PTOs, SAFE Communities of Wright County, Joey Bongaart's Memorial Scholarship and more.  

NEW IN 2012:

  • This year, K-12 public schools will join the ranks of organizations that can benefit from the 24-hour giving fest. GiveMN launched “Schools on GiveMN,” allowing K-12 public schools to fundraise on the site.
  • Golden Tickets with $1,000 prize grants are expanded to schools. One nonprofit and one school donor will be chosen at random every hour during Give to the Max Day and prize grants will be awarded to the nonprofit or school to which they donated.
  • Two $10,000 “Supersized” Golden Tickets to one nonprofit and one school donor who gave during Give to the Max Day will be awarded to the nonprofit or school they donated to, and a $500 prize grant will be awarded to the “Most Creative Give to the Max Day Fundraising Campaign” at the Association of Fundraising Professionals Minnesota Chapter National Philanthropy Day luncheon on Nov. 16.
  • Mobile donation is available. Minnesotans can use their smartphones and tablets to access GiveMN.org on any mobile device.
