Oct 31, 2013 03:01PM
In 2012, Give to the Max Day inspired more than 53,000 donors from Minnesota and beyond to give $16.3 million dollars, breaking previous event records. Donations last year reached nearly 4,400 organizations across the state, including K-12 public schools, a new category. The event has raised more than $75 million dollars since it began four years ago.
“Give to the Max Day has truly become a tradition for many people across the state and an invaluable resource for thousands of organizations. It’s a fun way to make a huge difference for Minnesota’s nonprofits and schools,” says Dana Nelson, executive director. “It’s so easy for people to participate by donating using a mobile device or scheduling a donation prior to the event. The toughest part is figuring out what organizations to support.”
