The weather outside might be cooling down, but November is heating up with Minnesota's annual Give to the Max Day on Thursday, November 17.
Start making your giving list early on GiveMN.org. This year, prize incentives are back to help generous Minnesotans double their impact. The Bush Foundation is providing prize grants to boost giving and encourage people to give early and often! Check out the details here.
Here at the Foundation, we're big champions of this celebration that not only raises critical funds for our state's amazing nonprofits but also raises lots of awareness about the incredible power of people to solve problems in and with their communities. We'll be watching for the fun and flavor that so many organizations bring to this special day.
And if you're feeling extra energized, you'll have more opportunities for giving on November 29 - Giving Tuesday! It's a nationwide movement and another chance to unleash the power of radical generosity that so many around our region demonstrate every day.
Be sure to check out Native Ways Federation and their #GiveNative campaign that's part of Giving Tuesday.
A little Giving Tuesday fun fact: The Native Ways Federation's executive director, Carly Bad Heart Bull, is a former Bush Foundation colleague, and if you sign up for their newsletter, you'll see we share the same mailing address!
