Otto Bremer Foundation's
March Millions for Southeastern Minnesota

This March, you ignited even more generosity. The Otto Bremer Foundation matched the first $1 million in donations made on to these southeastern Minnesota nonprofits. In addition to the match, organizations were excited to win Bremer Boost prizes. Every day, one lucky donor was randomly drawn and $1,000 was added to their donation. On March 31, one donor who gave on any day in March had the $10,000 Bremer Boost added to their gift!
