Wow! I can’t believe how many generous people stepped up to give for Minnesota’s annual Give to the Max day this year.
Matching Donations x2
A generous couple offered to match any donations given by new or renewing donors, up to $1,000. And when we first announced that match in the morning, people responded!
In fact, that match inspired a second couple to reach out to us and offer to match another $1,000!
I’m so grateful to report that we met both matches, thanks to caring donors!Donate Now
