11/6/2013 8:58:00 AM Give to the Max for CF Ed Foundation
To the editor:
The Cannon Falls Education Foundation will again rally with other charities and schools during the state's collective philanthropic spirit on Thursday, Nov. 14 for the fifth annual Give to the Max Day 2013 through GiveMN.org.
Last year, more than 53,000 individual donors logged on to GiveMN.org and gave more than $16.3 million to nearly 4,400 Minnesota schools and nonprofits in 24 hours during Give to the Max Day. In 2012, the Ed Foundation raised over $15,000 utilizing this campaign for our annual Club 252 Pledge Drive and are striving to exceed that amount with your help.
Give throughout the day as Golden Ticket donor drawings will be held every hour where Cannon Falls has the chance to win a $1,000 prize grant. Super-sized Golden Tickets of $10,000 will be given to one school and one nonprofit at the end of Give to the Max Day. We will also be encouraging donations during the "Power Hour" of 5:00-5:59 p.m. in which the school that raises the most in that hour will receive a $10,000 donation.
By giving online with GiveMN, Cannon Falls' residents have the opportunity to make a huge difference for schools in our area. We hope you will help support our community by logging on to www.GiveMN.org on Nov. 14 and find the Club 252 Pledge Drive project page. Be a part of this historic event and join the Great Minnesota Give Together!
