Give to the Max Day was created in 2009 to launch GiveMN, a collaborative venture led by Minnesota Community Foundation and many other organizations committed to helping make our state a better place.

That initial spark touched off a blast of online giving — $14 million in 24 hours. Since then, Give to the Max Day has become an annual tradition. Every year thousands of organizations and individuals generate donations and excitement for Minnesota causes that are working to improve the quality of life for all Minnesotans.

Give to the Max Day has become a national model for giving days.

Your donation on Give to the Max Day also may help us receive an additional donation of $1,000. How? On November 16, every gift made on will be entered into an hourly drawing for a $1,000 GiveMN Golden Ticket to be awarded to a nonprofit organization. Your gift of $10 or more could instantly turn into an extra $1,000!

Here’s the really exciting part: One donation made on during the Give to the Max campaign will be randomly selected to receive a $10,000 Super-Sized GiveMN Golden Ticket!

The more gifts we generate on during Give to the Max Day, the more our chances increase to receive that additional $10,000 donation. Imagine what we could do with $10,000!

We thank you for the support and consideration.

With hope,

The Friends of the Angel Committee
