Give to the Max via GiveMN.org

It appears as though a dozen+ Northfield/Rice County area non-profits and/or their supporters are actively making use of the GiveMN.org website to solicit matching donations today between 8 am and midnight.

For more info, see the About/GiveMN PDF; and see last weekend’s Nfld News: Nonprofits rally donors for online matching fund day.

Use the GiveMN.org search box to search for “Northfield” and you’ll get a comprehensive GuideStar listing of 200 Northfield area non-profit organizations. But only a few have added photos and more information to the GiveMN site, for example:

    Strib: Minnesotans donate nearly $9 million on ‘Give to the Max Day’

    Nine hours into the state’s first “Give to the Max Day”, Minnesotans have donated $8.6 million to their favorite churches, charities and nonprofits.

    The 24-hour online giving blitz goes until 8 a.m. Wednesday, but organizers were declaring it a mega-success by Tuesday afternoon.

    “We’re blown away by people’s generosity,” said Dana Nelson, executive director of GiveMN, a new charitable giving website that “hosted” the event Tuesday.

  2. Is online giving too impersonal?

    Sat. Nfld News: Online charity drive breaks $220,000.

    Other nonprofits took in more than $45,000. The Community Action Center, for example, received $12,285 from 54 people and another $500 in matching funds. “That was amazing. It really floored me,” said Jim Blaha, director of the CAC. He expected donations to continue through the site, but wondered whether the process might strike donors as impersonal. “Will this take us another step away from the donor, or is this the way we should be thinking about it?” Blaha said.
