Halloween has come and gone, and that means it's time to kick off Minnesota's annual season of giving with Give to the Max, starting today through November 15!
If you're new to Minnesota, or are just starting to dip your toes into the charitable giving world, you may not be familiar with Give to the Max. Just as other organizations celebrate "Giving Tuesday" on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, Minnesota has quickly adopted "Give to the Max Day", a day of giving to support local nonprofits and schools. What used to be one day of giving (with the option to schedule your gift prior to the actual Give to the Max day) has turned into two full weeks of giving!
Similar to previous years, any gift made between the 1st and the 15th of this month will count toward our Give to the Max totals. We also have a generous matching gift of $100,000, thanks to a combination of an anonymous donor and the Frey Foundation. That means your Give to the Max donation will go twice as far!
Step up as a Builder
If you've already made a gift and want to do more, consider signing up to become a Habitat Builder! Builders encourage friends and family to make donations to their personal Habitat fundraising pages leading up to November 15. And as an added bonus, our top two fundraisers will each receive a $250 Visa gift card, and any Builder that recruits 10 or more people to donate to their page will receive a $50 credit to our online store launching later this month!

More to celebrate
In addition to Give to the Max Day, on November 12, we will be hosting a party to kickoff our Multiplying the Impact campaign with Habitat supporters. The goal of this campaign is to not only encourage generous giving - but also inspire supporters to take action in support of Habitat. It is our hope that this combination of giving + actions will push us closer to meeting our organization's strategic goal of more than doubling the number of Habitat homeownership opportunities available for local families!
