About Give to the Max Day
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 (including the Catholic Services Appeal Foundation) that are working to improve the quality of life for all Minnesotans.
GiveMN links donors with organizations that are working to make Minnesota a better place. Its online giving website, GiveMN.org, enables charitable giving any time and any place, allowing people to donate with ease and enthusiasm. GiveMN brings innovation, energy and fresh ideas to Minnesota generosity. GiveMN is an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and an affiliate of Minnesota Philanthropy Partners.
