Organizers encourage donors to give generously to their favorite Minnesota causes as part of Minnesota’s giving holiday
MINNEAPOLIS, Nov. 16, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Start Reading Now is participating in the 14th annual Give to the Max giving event taking place this year starting on Tuesday, Nov. 1 and culminating on Thursday, Nov. 17. Give to the Max is a statewide giving event that raises millions each year for more than 6,000 causes across Minnesota and beyond. Considered Minnesota’s holiday for generosity, donors have given more than $225 million since the inaugural Give to the Max Day in 2009.
Start Reading Now is a Minneapolis-based nonprofit addressing the fact that on average, low-income families have less than one book at home. By providing 30 free books from 1st through 3rd grade, thousands of Minneapolis schoolchildren can read over summer break, prevent summer skills slide, and build their at-home library.
“In 2020, we saw more donors and organizations participating in Give to the Max than ever before, crossing the $30 million mark for the very first time,” said Jake Blumberg, executive director of GiveMN, the nonprofit that hosts Give to the Max. “Nonprofits and schools across Minnesota are still meeting record levels of need around the COVID-19 pandemic, disasters like this summer’s wildfires, continuing to advance social justice, and much more. We’re encouraging everyone to keep their foot on the generosity pedal this year and help organizations continue to be resilient for the work ahead of them.”
To participate in Give to the Max, donors should visit GiveMN.org and search for the causes they care about most by name, keyword, ZIP code, and more. Early Giving for Give to the Max begins Nov. 1 and continues through Give to the Max Day on Nov. 17, with random drawings for more than $100,000 in prize grants for Minnesota organizations throughout the event.
Each donation made through GiveMN.org qualifies Start Reading Now for additional grants from the Give to the Max prize pool, thanks to the continued generosity of the Bush Foundation.
