The smart way for Minnesotans to discover, support and engage with charities.
Give to the Max Day is Thursday, November 14, 2013.
Give to the Max Day was created in 2009 to increase giving to nonprofit organizations across the state and move more giving online. It is a day for Minnesotans to come together to raise as much money as possible for nonprofits and schools in 24 hours – starting at midnight on November 14, 2013 through midnight on November 15, 2013. By engaging as many donors as possible to give to their favorite Minnesota charities in one day – Give to the Max Day — GiveMN.org is showcasing Minnesota’s unparalleled generosity to the world! During last year's Give to the Max Day, $16.3 million was raised to benefit Minnesota nonprofit organizations and schools. And, a record 53,339 donors logged on to GiveMN.org to donate to their favorite Minnesota charity. In 2013, we will help thousands of nonprofits and schools raise millions of dollars again!
Golden Tickets are back by popular demand! Like last year, K-12 public schools will be eligible for separate Golden Tickets each hour. That means a person who donates to a nonprofit AND a person who donates to a K-12 public school will be randomly selected to have $1,000 added to their donations each hour. At the end of the 24-hour event, we’ll draw one nonprofit donor and one K-12 public school donor to each receive a Super-sized Golden Ticket, adding $10,000 to their donations!
Nonprofits and schools that raise the most money during each of five power hours will win a $1,000 prize grant. The organization from each leaderboard category (all nonprofits and schools, medium nonprofits, small nonprofits, and Greater Minnesota) and the school that raises the most from 2:00-2:59 a.m., 5:00-5:59 a.m., 5:00-5:59 p.m., 6:00-6:59 p.m., and 11:00-11:59 p.m. will each win a $1,000 prize grant, for a total of $5,000 in prize grants each power hour!
We are again encouraging your organization to offer a match on donations on Give to the Max Day. GiveMN will not be matching donations. Watch our video "HOW TO: Set up a Match on GiveMN."
Once again we are making plans to broadcast video live via the Internet (the live stream) with the help of our friends at The UpTake.org.
