Give to the Max Day - November 17!


Minnesota nonprofits and the individuals who want to support them will find the donation process easier and more convenient with the launch of GiveMN.org this November. GiveMN, the first-of-its-kind online giving portal, will provide donors with information about organizations that match their philanthropic goals, and will allow users to easily keep track of their donations in a single online location.

There are a number of really cool things about this new initiative. First off, thanks to its generous supporters, GiveMN is covering the transaction fees for donations processed through the site, so 100% of your donation goes to your cause. Transaction fees are normally close to 5%, so this makes a huge difference.

Second is the upcoming Give to the Max Day, next Tuesday, November 17. All donations received that day are eligible for a matching contribution from GiveMN's partners. This gives you the potential to double your donations to CAFAC simply by logging on and making a contribution in any amount!

Please mark your calendars for November 17 and make a contribution to CAFAC. Your support is critical to us as we work to renovate our building, equip our shop, and open our doors, and GiveMN makes it easy to help us out!
