Give to the Max: Minnesota nonprofits raise record amounts

Publish date:

Minnesota nonprofits raked in more than $15 million during Give to the Max Day on Thursday, a record for the state and the nation, the Star Tribune reports.

About 4,300 nonprofits will benefit from the giving from more than 50,000 donors, the Pioneer Press reports. The Pioneer Press notes the total raised on the GiveMN website by midnight was actually about $16.4 million.

The website lists a "leaderboard" of the top 10 recipients. No. 1 was Cretin Derham Hall high school with $377,000. Second and third were: Interfaith Outreach and Community Partners (about $371,000) and Second Harvest Heartland (almost $315,000).

There was such a rush to donate that the website had trouble keeping up with it all, KARE 11 reports:
