Minnesota's Give to the Max

GiveMN launched in 2009 as a collaborative venture led by Minnesota Community Foundation and many other organizations committed to helping make Minnesota a better place.

To generate excitement, they organized a little something called Give to the Max Day. That spark touched off a blast of online giving - $14 million in 24 hours. Since that trial run in 2009, Give to the Max Day has become an annual tradition. Every year thousands of organizations raise money to improve the quality of life in Minnesota and communities around the world. Support NILMDTS continue to reach more families and provide the free gift of remembrance photography.
