Last year, at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, our team created and hosted GiveAtHomeMN, the first statewide giving event we’ve offered outside of Give to the Max Day. Through this event, nearly 3,000 nonprofits and schools raised $5.2 million at a time of great uncertainty and need.
Like many of you, we have been thoughtful in planning our 2021 activities to meet the needs of our community. At its most basic, our mission is to help donors give more money and organizations to raise more money. Additionally, 70 percent of organizations we surveyed last month said they would find another giving event this spring valuable to their fundraising efforts.
That’s why we have decided to host another giving event this spring as we work to help leverage the generosity of donors for organizations still very much in need of their support.
