This is the first year GiveMN is allowing K-12 public schools to fundraise on the site, and we've heard several parent groups in the Stillwater Area School District will be actively fundraising for their schools.
During Give to the Max Day, 2012 public schools will be eligible for prize grants in the form of hourly “Golden Tickets” – an hourly drawing to add $1,000 to a person’s donation - randomly selected from donors who gave during each hour of the event. At the end of the event, one public schools donor will be drawn to receive a Super-sized Golden Ticket, adding $10,000 to their donation!
We want to help you raise money.
Last year, $13.6 million was raised in Minnesota on Give To the Max Day, with GiveMN.org, the group behind the annual giving day, handing out another $4,161,929 in incentives for groups that met benchmarks for individual donations and dollars raised.
