How do I make a gift during GTMD?
During Give to the Max and all year-round, you can make a donation on GiveMN.org to the causes of your choosing! Simply visit GiveMN.org, search for the nonprofit or school you want to support, and click “donate!” You can also go to GiveMN.org/search to view organizations by cause type, location, and more.
All donations made on GiveMN.org beginning November 1 through November 16 count toward Give to the Max Day totals and are eligible for prize grants.
How do I decide what organizations to support?
Where you give depends on your passions! There are tens of thousands of organizations on GiveMN.org doing good work in their communities. Here’s some ideas to get you started:
May I cover the fee associated with my gift?
Yes! On average, 93% of donors add a little bit more to pay the processing fee associated with their gifts so that 100% of their donation goes to the organization they support. On behalf of the organizations you support, thank you for this additional generosity.
The processing fee on GiveMN.org covers credit card processing fees assessed by financial institutions, and ensures GiveMN.org remains a free, private, and accessible digital platform for Minnesota nonprofits and schools year-round.
How do I access the receipts for my tax-deductible donations?
You can access your giving statements and donation receipts any time by logging into your free GiveMN.org account! Not only will a receipt be emailed to you after every donation you make, but a printer-friendly version of your receipt is always available to you in your account. As a reminder, all donations made through GiveMN.org are 100% tax-deductible.
I want to give monthly to an organization. How do I do that?
Making a monthly donation to an organization is an excellent way to make a difference—thank you! When making your donation, you can simply select “monthly donation” instead of “one-time donation” to set up your recurring gift schedule. Read more about how to set up and manage your monthly donations on GiveMN.org.
