A Look Back: Give to the Max Day 2009 Results

In November 2009, The Minnesota Community and the St. Paul and Minneapolis Foundations, came together to create GiveMN.org, which was launched with Give to the Max Day – a single day community giving campaign.

$14M was raised in 24 hours. Significant numbers of nonprofits reported acquiring new donors from the campaign; the Minnesota chapter of America’s Second Harvest reported that 700 of 900 donations it received on that day were from “new” donors. Due to the overwhelming success of the 2009 fundraising campaign, Give to the Max Day is now an annual November event!

    I am president of the Friends of Lashbrook Park in Northfield — a tax-exempt organization. How can we sign up for this next year?

    Congratulations !

    • Hi Gloria, Thank you for your interest! Please email us at np@razoo.com to get your registered nonprofit organization listed on GiveMN.org (we will need some documentation) and you’ll be setup to participate in next year’s Give to the Max Day community fundraising campaign!

  • One of our parents was involved in the Give to the Max Day in MN. Will/are you doing anything like this in Missouri?

    • Hi Jane, Thanks for your interest in a community or group fundraising campaign! We would love to do a similar state-wide campaign in Missouri if there is sufficient interest and a community foundation or other “anchor” organization that can coordinate and engage nonprofits across the state. In the meantime, please contact us at campaigns@razoo.com or call us at (866) 437-1952 for more information about a $1000 matching grant holiday promotion Razoo is offering until the end of the year. That would allow you to do your own team fundraising right away! For more information, download this promotion poster here >>

    Great work. I am very concerned about our national deficit. Could this format be used for concerned citizens to contribute to reducing the deficit? Fabulous fundraising effort. I am a former
    Minnesotan now living and retired in Colorado.
