Today is Give to the Max Day! Support your favorite Catholic School or cause!

November 15, 2012


Today is the day to potentially give your giving a little more punch.

From the GiveMN website:

Today our communities come together for 24 hours of online giving. Every donation you make during Give to the Max Day 2012 will help qualify your nonprofit or school for prize money and awards, furthering the impact of your donation.

There are several ways your donation can go further on Give to the Max Day.

Leaderboard prize grants – nonprofits which raise the most dollars will earn a spot on one of the four leaderboards. There are prize grants for each of the top 10 spots on all leaderboards. Prizes are as follows: 1st place – $12,500; 2nd place – $5,000; 3rd place – $2,500; 4th-10th place – $1,000.

Golden Tickets – One nonprofit donor and one K-12 public schools donor will be randomly chosen every hour to have $1,000 added to their donation. One nonprofit donor and one K-12 public schools donor will also be selected randomly from throughout the 24 hours of giving to have $10,000 added to their donation!

Matching grants – hundreds of nonprofits are offering a dollar-for-dollar match so you can double your donation.

Learn about the nonprofits and schools serving our area, make a donation, and watch your generosity change lives. For complete rules and prizes, click the link below.

Give to the Max Day: Wednesday, November 16

November 11, 2011


As you consider your charitable end-of-year giving, please consider donating to pro-life organizations by participating in Give to the Max Day on Wednesday, November 16, hosted by GiveMN–it doubles your dollars!

You can amplify your giving impact in a number of ways:

· Win a Golden Ticket! $1,000 will be given to a random donor’s charity every hour. You could be that donor!

· NEW THIS YEAR… $15,000, $10,000 and $5,000 prize grants will be awarded to the top three small nonprofit organizations – with budgets under $750,000 – which receive the most dollars on Give to the Max Day.

List of some great pro-life organizations

Below are some organizations you may want to consider (I will add to the list as I receive the proper information):

Total LifeCare Centers–Please click here for information on how to donate to this life-affirming organization. It’s so easy to give!

  • Because of you, TLC was able to help thousands of women. Last year, TLC affiliates provided over 24,000 services to women and families. The Centers also performed over 1,400 free ultrasounds, which allowed mothers and fathers to see and bond with their preborn children. Your gift will help them save more babies from abortion and make a huge difference in their work.

Cradle of Hope–Please click here to donate to this beautiful organization (This will bring you to their FaceBook page.) It’s very simple, plus, you’ll be able to view a YouTube video of a happy baby in one of their cribs.

  • Cradle of Hope provides financial assistance to pregnant women and to women with infants under three months old. For many, they are a source of last resort. Their Safe Slumber Program distributes Pack N Play portable cribs to provide a safe and comfortable sleeping environment for infants – and they are a symbol of joy for mothers. Give them the chance to gain even more support with your gift.


Thank you! Your generosity helps families to embrace life!
