Faith in Action for Cass County participating in fifth annual Give to the Max Day Nov. 14

Faith in Action for Cass County is one of many nonprofit organizations throughout the state that will once again ask Minnesotans to display their record-breaking generosity by donating to their favorite causes and schools online at during the fifth annual “Give to the Max Day” on Nov. 14.

“We set single-day records for philanthropic giving in 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012, and want to keep that streak going in 2013,” said Dana Nelson, executive director of GiveMN, which debuted in fall 2009 as a first-of-its-kind giving website and sponsors Give to the Max Day.  

This year GiveMN will offer several incentives to encourage donor participation in Give to the Max Day. Community members can support Faith in Action for Cass County and other local nonprofits and schools for an opportunity to win prize grants up to $10,000 as top donation earners. During Give to the Max Da, Faith in Action for Cass County will be eligible for prize grants in the form of Golden Tickets–hourly drawings to add $1,000 to a donor’s gift, randomly selected from donors who gave during each hour of the event. One donor giving to a nonprofit and one donor to a school will be drawn in the evening for a super-sized Golden Ticket and have $10,000 added to their donations.

GiveMN is a collaborative nonprofit venture to transform philanthropy in Minnesota by growing charitable giving and moving more of it online. GiveMN is an independent 501(c)(3) organization and an affiliate of Minnesota Philanthropy Partners. For more information, visit, or contact Faith in Action for Cass County at 866-675-5435 or
