Give to the Max Day: $10,000 Would Go Far for Students in Minnesota

“Last year, my classroom ran out of funding for the last two months of class.  If I didn’t get funding from, I would be spending my own money.” Jaclyn, Art Teacher in Minneapolis

Raise a hand for teachers with us on November 17, 2016 for Give to the Max Day by giving the GiveMN page your support! Help us support local classrooms as part of our Minnesota Highest-Needs Fund, a fund to help teachers purchase the supplies they need for their students in poverty. Your donation will be matched up to $3,000!

Last year, nonprofit organizations and schools across Minnesota raised more than $18 million on Give to the Max Day. With your help, we can prove just how giving Minnesota can be by increasing this amount, while putting supplies in the hands of teachers in the process.


Every donation made though can make a huge impact. Here’s how:

Your donation on Give to the Max Day will put us in the running to receive an additional $1,000. On November 17, gifts given to nonprofits on are entered into a drawing each hour for a $1,000 GiveMN Golden Ticket prize. The more donations we receive on Give to the Max Day increases the odds of receiving an extra $1,000 in support of teachers.

We could receive $10,000 because of your single donation. One donation will be chosen at random on Give to the Max Day to award the corresponding charity with a Super-Sized Golden Ticket prize of $10,000. If you make a donation early on, between November 1, 2016 and November 16, 2016, you could also put us in the running for a second $10,000 Super-Sized Golden Ticket drawing.

After dark donations on Give to the Max Day could get us a $1,000 prize if you’re a night owl. Between 8:00pm and 11:59pm CST, GiveMN will award the organization with the most donations at each of these four hours with a $1,000 gift.

Random donations on November 17 may trigger an extra reward. If your donation helps GiveMN reach one of their major milestones, they will add a $1,000 to your gift. Making a donation at just the right time during Give to the Max Day could cause GiveMN to send an additional $500 to the organization you’re supporting.


The more gifts we receive through on Give to the Max Day, the better our chances are of receiving any of these additional donations. Even if we aren’t awarded any prizes from GiveMN, your generous donations on November 17 alone will help make a big impact on classrooms in need of supplies.
