UPDATE: 15th annual Give to the Max Day generates about $34.2M for over 6,000 charities
MANKATO, Minn. (KEYC) -
UPDATE: This year’s Give to the Max Day generated around $34.2 million dollars for over 6,000 charities.
Those results make this year’s campaign the second highest on record.
This year missed the all-time record by less than one percent.
According to organizers, a new record was set for the number of nonprofits and schools receiving gifts as part of the campaign.
GiveMN awarded more than $100,000 in prize grants to Minnesota organizations every 15 minutes throughout the day.
Today is Give to the Max Day and area nonprofits are campaigning for their causes.
Give to the Max is a statewide initiative that supports about 6-thousand organizations each year, with last year’s effort exceding $34-million. More than 100 local nonprofits participated this year, and Greater Mankato Growth says that those nonprofits are crucial in helping the area thrive and continue to grow as a community.
”There are dozens and dozens of phenomenal nonprofits that really touch the lives of everybody in our community whether you know it or not. And they’re doing such incredible work, all of them really to serve one purpose, and that’s to serve our community and our region to help make it a better place to live and do business,” said Andy Wilke.
Today’s total so far is nearly $26 million dollars. More information on how to support local nonprofits through Give to the Max, check out https://www.givemn.org/giving-events/gtmd23/leaderboards-about
