In the year of the novel coronavirus, charitable giving has become more important than ever, prompting several local nonprofits to sign up for participation in the 12th annual Give to the Max Day (GTMD), set for Thursday, Nov. 19.

Dubbed as "Minnesota's largest day of giving," GTMD raised more than $190 million for roughly 10,000 Minnesota-based charitable causes in its first 11 years, according to information from the website, .

This fundraiser is entirely online for 24 hours for thousands of nonprofits and schools.

In addition, some nonprofits receive matching gifts from local businesses and organizations that can double, or even triple the amount of each individual donation.

Local organizations participating in this year's Give to the Max Day include the Park Rapids Area Library, Nemeth Art Center, Kinship of the Park Rapids Area, Heartland Arts, Living at Home of the Park Rapids Area and Park Rapids Schools. A complete list of participating organizations can be found at .


Give to the Max Day was created in 2009 to launch GiveMN, a collaborative venture led by the Minnesota Community Foundation and other organizations committed to making the state a better place. According to GiveMN, that initial spark touched off an outpouring of generosity – $14 million in 24 hours. Since then, Give to the Max Day has become an annual tradition.

Interested donors can visit to find a cause and learn more. Charitable donations are made with a debit or credit card. The minimum donation is $10. There is no maximum.

GiveMN is an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and an affiliate of Minnesota Philanthropy Partners. GiveMN is supported by many generous foundation and corporate partners as well as contributions from individual Minnesotans.
