Online fundraising meets matching grants: Double your support of Minnesota youth

09.30.2010By

For many of us who help others through monetary gifts, the big question is: How can I maximize the impact of my gift to the causes I care about?

Minnesotans are encountering a special opportunity this week when their gifts will be twice as effective as normally. From Sept 28 to Oct 5, GiveMN is hosting the Bremer Give-to-the-Kids Challenge — one week in which the Otto Bremer Foundation will donate one dollar for every dollar given to Minnesota youth, a 1-to-1 match up to $300,000.

This means that organizations doing good have an opportunity for $600,000, if donors can provide the first $300,000. It’s double the dollars, double the impact, and double the help for the next generation in Minnesota.

Watch the video above to see a full explanation and see more testimonials on the GiveMN YouTube channel.
