Organizations statewide are gearing up for Give to the Max Day 2019, one of the largest fundraising days in Minnesota.

Give to the Max Day is a 24-hour fundraising day that encourages people to donate to nonprofits and schools all across Minnesota. This year, Give to the Max Day is Thursday.

The day was created by GiveMN, an independent nonprofit organization launched in 2009 by Minnesota Community Foundation. Not only does GiveMN host the annual Give to the Max Day, but the organization also helps nonprofits and schools fundraise year-round.

Give to the Max Day began in 2009 and donors have given nearly $170 million to more than 10,000 nonprofits and schools in the last 10 years. Last year was a record-breaking day with 5,478 organizations across the state receiving a combined $21 million. The previous record was $20.6 million in 2017.
