The Amazing, Real-Life Story Of GiveMN
What if giving was easier and more fun? That’s the simple question that launched GiveMN.
Tons of work and heaping helpings of generosity gave us the answer: It would be awesome.
GiveMN launched in 2009 as a collaborative venture led by Minnesota Community Foundation and many other organizations committed to helping make our state a better place.
To generate excitement, we 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.
We’re thrilled how Minnesotans have embraced Give to the Max Day. But GiveMN is more than a one-day giving extravaganza. We are a giving website available year-round to link people with nonprofits and schools and make giving soar.
We envision an unparalleled state of giving — a Minnesota where innovative technology and creative ideas help each person’s generosity soar to its full potential.
We ignite generosity and grow giving. Using creative ideas and innovative technology, we connect more people with more causes than ever before.
