'Give to the Max' Day to help non-profits
"Give to the Max" Day returns on November 16.
Minnesotans will once again be challenged to raise as much money as possible for West Central Minnesota Communities Action (WCMCA) and other statewide nonprofits in 24 hours.
Give to the Max Day was created to increase giving to nonprofits across the state. All donations on Give to the Max Day will be made through GiveMN.org, a first-of-its-kind giving website that helps Minnesotans discover, support and engage with nonprofits.
GiveMN also lets donors manage their charitable giving by recording online contributions and storing receipts.
New in 2010, GiveMN will offer several incentives to encourage nonprofit and donor participation in Give to the Max Day, including:
A $20,000 and $10,000 prize grant will be awarded to the top two nonprofits in the Twin Cities and the top two nonprofits in Greater Minnesota that attract the largest number of individual donors on Give to the Max Day.
Throughout the 24-hour event, an individual donor will be randomly chosen every hour to have an additional $1,000 given to the charity that received the donor's original donation.
Donors will have the opportunity to double their dollars for West Central Minnesota Communities Action that have secured matching funds for Give to the Max Day.
