I’m already combing through recipes and planning what I’ll be bringing to the big Thanksgiving Day spread this year. (I’m not hosting this year). Of course Thanksgiving is all about gratitude, giving thanks, and Give to the Max Day embodies that perfectly.
Launched as a collaborative venture with Minnesota Community Foundations and many other organization at the helm, GiveMN was founded in 2009.
GiveMN strives to make Minnesota a better place by connecting donors with organizations. So far, donors have given nearly $170 million dollars to 10,000 nonprofits and schools through the program.
Minnesotans are generous people! In fact according to data from the U.S. Census Bureau, US Department of Housing and Urban Development, Internal Revenue Service, Feeding America, and Gallup, Minnesota ranks #3 for the most “Charitable” state. The Report defined charitable as “volunteering and service” as well as “charitable giving.”
This year, Give to the Max Day is on Thursday, November 14th but you don’t have to wait to give to your favorite organization, early giving is underway!
It’s not too late to add your organization. Go to the GiveMN website If you’re interested in starting a fundraiser or claiming your nonprofit.

We put together our short list of organizations. There are so many great ones out there!
“The Steve Rummler Hope Network speaks for those who can’t. We were fortunate to have the organization’s Executive Director, Lexi Reed Holtum on our last Happy(our) panel. In a time where opioid addiction affects so many lives, we need organizations like the Steve Rummler Hope Network on the front lines of the fight against this crisis.”
“They are the only nonprofit Montessori school in Northeast Minneapolis. They have a small and supportive community of parents and donors. They are also growing to accommodate the demand for students, but need more materials in order to do so.”
