Dana Nelson, executive director of GiveMN.org, is optimistic about this year and has a goal of engaging more than 40,000 donors within the 24 hour time period. To help achieve this goal, new incentives for nonprofits and donor participation have been created such as:
· A $20,000 and $10,000 prize grant will be awarded to the top two nonprofits in the Twin Cities and the top two nonprofits in greater Minnesota that attract the largest number of individual donors on Give to the Max Day.
· Throughout the event, an individual donor will be randomly chosen every hour to have an additional $1,000 given to the charity that received the donor’s original donation.
· Donors will have the opportunity to double their dollars for hundreds of featured nonprofits that have secured matching funds for Give to the Max Day.
