Letter - Give to the max on November 16Imagine the impact we could have if all Minnesotans came together on the same day to give whatever they could to help support nonprofits across the state.
To the editor:
Imagine the impact we could have if all Minnesotans came together on the same day to give whatever they could to help support nonprofits across the state. Well, that day is here – November 16, 2010, is the second annual Give to the Max Day, and nonprofit organizations throughout the state will once again ask fellow Minnesotans to display their record-breaking generosity.
During last year’s Give to the Max Day, more than 38,000 donors logged on to giveMN.org. The result: more than $14 million for 3,434 Minnesota nonprofits, whose missions range from feeding the hungry, to protecting the environment, to promoting the arts. This year’s goal is to engage more than 40,000 donors to give to their favorite Minnesota charities in just 24 hours, and you can be a part of this year’s event!
All you need to do is visit giveMN.org on November 16, search for your favorite nonprofit organization in Minnesota, and give what you can. 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 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 hundreds of featured nonprofits that have secured matching funds for Give to the Max Day.
Will you give? For more information, please visit giveMN.org.
