Give to the Max Day: What is it?

give to the max option 2


Give to the Max Day (#GTMD19) is Minnesota’s own “holiday” when nonprofit organizations are celebrated, and Minnesotans are encouraged to give back to causes and organizations they care most about! GTMD began in 2009 and has been an annual tradition since; in its 10 years, has raised about $170 million for schools and nonprofits across the state.  

Not only does Give to the Max Day raise money through donations, but in addition, each time a donation is made, that organization is then entered into a raffle to win even more money. This is thought of as a way to create a little more excitement around donating—not to mention the extra funds for causes you care about!

When is Give to the Max Day and how can I participate?

Give to the Max Day is celebrated annually by, and this year, it is on Thursday, November 14th from midnight to 11:59pm.  You can participate by making donations to organizations, like EVOLVE Family Services, on GTMD and following along with the leaderboards at!

If you are part of a nonprofit organization, nonprofit school, or public school and would like to register for GTMD, please visit for details. 

In the meantime, is currently accepting early donations—so go donate today!
