About Give to the Max Day: November 14 12am-12pm

Give to the Max Day is the great Minnesota give together: a day when thousands of Minnesotans raise millions of dollars for local nonprofits. Last year over $15 million was raised on Give to the Max Day alone—and that’s not the only reason to give! Many nonprofits will offer matching grants to double your dollars; Second Harvest Heartland has a generous matching grant of $100,000 from The Mosaic Company Foundation, plus even more in matching funds from individual donors.
