We are proud to support GiveMN’s mission...Any group that wants to attract this kind of generosity may want to take a page from the GiveMN playbook.

More than 62,000 people donated a record-breaking $18.3 million to Minnesota nonprofits and schools during the sixth annual Give to the Max Day, a 24-hour online give-a-thon. This represents a 20 percent increase in the number of donors compared to last year’s Give to the max Day, which raised a total of $17.1 million.

Donations made on during the event benefited more than 5,500 Minnesota nonprofits and schools – a 25 increase over last year.

GiveMN has had a remarkable track record since its inception in 2009, when its inaugural Give to the Max day event raised $14 million in one day. In October 2014, GiveMN reached the milestone of $100 million raised on its website for local nonprofits schools.

“Every year, I am amazed by the generosity of Minnesotans and the excitement that organizations generate that help make Give to the Max Day an annual success,” said Dana Nelson, executive director of GiveMN. “We’re pleased with the results of the day in our first year of partnership with Kimbia and look forward to doing great work together going forward that benefits even more Minnesotans.”

Earlier this year, GiveMN established a new partnership with Kimbia, a leading provider of digital fundraising technology with extensive and successful experience handling high-volume online giving.

“We are proud to support GiveMN’s mission,” said Dan Gillett, Kimbia CEO. “GiveMN has a track record of raising significant funds to support their community by providing a strong and positive donor experience during their single-day event as well as the year-round giving initiative that ensures ongoing awareness and support. Any group that wants to attract this kind of generosity may want to take a page from the GiveMN playbook.”
