Give to the Max Day 2013Give to the Max Day - November 14, 2013

November 14, 12 a.m. - 11:59 p.m.

On Give to the Max Day 2012, more than 1,200 donors logged on to and gave over $233,000 and helped win a $12,500 grant to support current St. Olaf students. This year the goal is to, once again, beat our own record.

GiveMN's Give to the Max Day amplifies your giving impact:

  • Win a Golden Ticket! $1,000 will be given to a random donor's non-profit every hour. You could be that donor, and St. Olaf could be that non-profit!
  • Put St. Olaf on the Leader Board! St. Olaf will receive $10,000 if we raise more money than any other Minnesota non-profit on Give to the Max Day. Last year, we were #1 in our category and we'd like to hold that title.
  • Power Hours! Non-profits and schools that raise the most money during each of the five power hours will win a $1,000 prize grant. These power hours are: 2-2:59 a.m., 5-5:59 a.m., 5-5:59 p.m., 6-6:59 p.m., and 11-11:59 p.m.

Thank you to all who supported St. Olaf suring Give to the Max Day 2013! Official results are being finalized, but in the meantime please visit to see unofficial contest results.
