158 donors to MinnPost in 24 hours

Give to the Max Day generated more than $13 million to more than 3,000 Minnesota nonprofits — including more than $18,000 in donations to MinnPost.


Give to the Max Day generated 158 online donations to MinnPost in the past 24 hours, totaling more than $18,000.

We didn’t make the top 10 list for most donors, which you can see here.

But for the size of our enterprise, the results were impressive.

The donations have been coming in faster than we can enter them in our database, so we’re not sure yet how many are first-time donors. We’ll update on that. And we’ll let you know how close we are to our goal of 1,600 members by year-end.

Update: We have 76 first-time donors, bringing us to 1,611 members.

Give to the Max Day is a project of the new giving portal, and we are an outreach partner of GiveMN. 

Overall, the day generated more than $13 million in online donations to more than 3,000 Minnesota nonprofits. Since the number was so high, the $500,000 in matching funds GiveMN assembled will generate less than 5 cents of match per dollar. But I’ll bet a lot of nonprofits will be happy anyway to see so much online donation activity. I know we are.

Give to the Max Day is over.  But you can still donate online to MinnPost here.

Thanks to everyone for your support.
