Organizers are gearing up for Give to the Max Day on Thursday November 14th.  Minnesota’s so-called ‘annual giving holiday’ is a 24-hour fundraiser for nonprofits, schools and organizations.  Deputy Executive Director Jenna Ray says you can make a donation online at Give-Mn-dot-org:

“You’ll see we have a search function. You can use that to look for organizations that you already know  and love.  We also have a couple of filters that you can use to search by “geographic” area and “cause” area and then through that you can make a gift directly to the organization.”

Ray says gifts made before next Thursday are eligible for prizes.  More than 64 hundred Minnesota schools and nonprofits received a total of 34 million dollars last year.
