Give to the Max Day 2017

When: November 16, All Day

Created as a launch party for GiveMN.org in 2009, Give to the Max Day has turned into Minnesota’s giving holiday. It is a special 24-hour period to highlight the work and worth of nonprofits and schools all across Minnesota, and a day for generous Minnesotans to give back what they can to the causes and organizations that mean the most to them. And as a bonus, GiveMN offers thousands of dollars in prizes to provide a little excitement, start some friendly competition, and help donors make their dollars go farther.

Give to the Max Day 2017 will be held from midnight to 11:59 pm on Thursday, November 16, 2017. Simply visit GiveMN.org and search for the organizations that mean the most to you!
