Mano a Mano is participating in Give to the Max Day tomorrow, Wednesday, November 16, 2011. Last year, more than 42,000 donors logged on to and gave over $10 million to Minnesota charities in 24 hours during Give to the Max Day!

GiveMN’s Give to the Max Day amplifies your giving impact in a number of ways:

  • Triple your Donation. An anonymous donor has provided us with an $8,000 matching gift, and because this grant is from a business, the Caterpillar Foundation will also match it dollar for dollar. Every dollar you donate tomorrow turns into $3 dollars!
  • Win a Golden Ticket. $1,000 will be given to a random donor’s charity every hour. You could be that donor!
  • Win Bolivian Crafts. Three donors who give $50 or more will be chosen randomly tomorrow to receive a 4’x4′ tablecloth made in Bolivia.
  • Put us on the Leader Board. $15,000, $10,000 and $7,500 prize grants will be awarded to the top three small nonprofit organizations – with budgets under $750,000 – which receive the most dollars on Give to the Max Day. $5,000 prize grants will be awarded to nonprofits in 4th through 10th place on the small nonprofit leaderboard.
