This Thursday is Give to the Max Day. GiveMN aims to raise millions of dollars for nearly 6,000 nonprofit charities in Minnesota on Thursday.

Many of the groups have been heavily impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Last year, officials say Give to the Max raised a record $21.7 million for nonprofits and schools. GiveMN has already raised $20 million this year before Give to the Max Day.

Officials say that more than $5.1 million was raised through their #GiveAtHomeMN fundraising campaign at the beginning of the pandemic last spring, and another $9 million after the death of George Floyd in May.

This is the 12th annual Give to the Max Day here in Minnesota.
