Prepare Today For 'Give to the Max Day'

Charities view December as the pivotal month for fundraising. Donors often wait until this proverbial last minute to make year-end, tax-exempt contributions to their favorite causes. Fortunately for not-for-profits here in Minnesota, though, there is a golden opportunity to kickstart year-end fundraising a full month early!

Give to the Max Day 2021 (#GTMD21), the state’s semi-official giving holiday, is slated for Thursday, November 18. Last year, more than 3,000 nonprofits – including dozens of Friends of the Library groups – got in on the action and raised upwards of $30 million. That’s a new record!

New to Give to the Max Day, but interested in taking advantage this time around? GiveMN, the organization which stewards GTMD, has helpfully compiled a variety of free resources – including many created specifically for fundraising novices! These include a “DIY” fundraising campaign planning workbook, downloadable templates and graphics, and no-cost workshop opportunities.
