Become a YWCA Superhero.
What is Give to the Max Day? Minnesota’s Giving Holiday!
Give to the Max Day is an annual online fundraising campaign that raises more than $20 million for the charitable organizations in Minnesota.
The day itself is November 16 but gifts can be given starting November 1.
Last year thousands of generous individuals just like you donated to make it the BIGGEST giving day in Minnesota history yet.
Give to YWCA Minneapolis and YOU Become a YWCA Superhero
By donating to YWCA Minneapolis on Give to the Max Day YOU become a YWCA superhero.
And why should you contribute?
Because we know you want to increase your impact to eliminate racism and empower women and girls.
And because YOU want to become a YWCA superhero to girls like Louise.
Louise is a youth enrolled in our EUREKA! Program which nurtures STEM education in adolescent girls and youth.
Louise says that thanks to YWCA, “I no longer feel it’s simply me against the world. Now I feel as if it’s me changing the world."
Read here about the experience of Louise and
others interning through our EUREKA! program this summer and see for yourself your
impact when you become a YWCA superhero.
