The 2012 Great Minnesota Give Together!
is one of many nonprofit organizations throughout the state that will once again ask Minnesotans to display their record-breaking generosity by donating to their favorite charities and schools online at www.GiveMN.org
during the fourth annual "Give to the Max Day
" on November 15.
Money donated to Someplace Safe will directly benefit our mission and work of helping to create safe, healthy communities, free from violence. You can give directly to Someplace Safe by visiting http://givemn.razoo.com/story/Someplacesafe
"We set single-day records for philanthropic giving in 2009, 2010 and 2011, and want to keep that streak going in 2012," said Dana Nelson, executive director of GiveMN, which debuted in fall 2009 as the first-of-its-kind giving website and sponsors Give to the Max Day. "This is a day for us to come together as Minnesotans and show our support for the nonprofit organizations and schools that work to strengthen our communities."
During last year's Give to the Max Day, 47,534 donors logged on to GiveMN.org. The result: $13.4 million raised for 3,978 Minnesota nonprofits, whose missions range from feeding the hungry, to protecting the environment, to promoting the arts. Someplace Safe raised $555 last year, and this year we are hoping to TRIPLE THAT
number with YOUR help!
2012 Give to the Max Day Incentives
In 2012, GiveMN
will offer several incentives to encourage donor participation in Give to the Max Day
. Community members can support Someplace Safe and other local nonprofits and schools for an opportunity to win prize grants up to $12,500 as top donation earners. During Give to the Max Day 2012
Someplace Safe will be eligible for prize grants in the form of hourly "Golden Tickets" - an hourly drawing to add $1,000 to a donor's donation, randomly selected from donors who gave during each hour of the event. One donor giving to a nonprofit and one donor to a K-12 public school will be drawn in the evening for a Super-sized Golden Ticket of $10,000 added to their donations.
At GiveMN, Minnesota nonprofits and schools can showcase their work and introduce their organizations to potential donors. Customized profiles of Minnesota charities detail their individual missions, programs and events. The site also lets donors manage their charitable giving by recording online contributions and storing receipts. Another new feature this year is the ability to schedule your donation, so if you're not able to give on November 15, your gift can still count! Click HERE
to schedule your donation today!
Thanks for your ongoing support of Someplace Safe, and be sure to stop by Someplace Safe on GiveMN
on November 15th and give what you can to help us continue our work!
Special thanks to our Give to the Max Day
