Give to the Max 22 Sep 11

 

Nonprofit organizations around the state are asking Minnesotans to “give to the max.”

The 3rd Annual Give to the Max Day is November 16th with a goal of raising as much money as possible for state charities in 24 hours at www.GiveMN.org

GiveMN has raised more than $33 million for more than 5,000 nonprofits since its 2009 debut.

New this year will be a donation leaderboard with three tiers of prize grants as incentives. Grants of $15,000, $10,000 and $5,000 will be awarded to the three nonprofit organizations that receive the most dollars. Grants also will be made to the top three small nonprofit organizations — those with budgets under $750,000 — that receive the most dollars. Nonprofits must register online to compete in this category.

Grants of $15,000 and $5,000 also will be made to the top two Minnesota colleges or universities that receive the most dollars. Last year, over 42,000 donors contributed to the cause.
