Give to the Max Day 2017 Prize Incentives


Celebrate Give to the Max Day with GiveMN on Thursday, November 16, 2017. To ensure maximum fun for a successful day, be sure to read our rules and guidelines for participation and eligibility, as well as detailed information about our prize incentives. 

The Give to the Max Day 2017 prize pool was slightly restructured to award more organizations as there are double the opportunities to win than in 2015 or 2016! We are excited to add a new Leaderboard and offer prizes through tenth place on all Leaderboards, and offer a daily Golden Ticket during each day of Scheduled Giving, as detailed below!

Please help us thank Bush Foundation, Mall of America, Lyft and Clockwork for helping to sponsor the prize pool for Give to the Max Day 2017!
