Give to the Max

You can help support the Down Syndrome Association of Minnesota’s programs and services on November 15th during Give to the Max Day!

Last year, more than 47,000 donors logged on to and gave over $13 million to Minnesota charities in 24 hours during Give to the Max Day. As you may know, the Down Syndrome Association of Minnesota is the only organization in the region that exclusively serves the needs of people with Down syndrome, their families and communities – your financial support helps the Down Syndrome Association of Minnesota continue to provide and improve programs and services.

Supporting the Down Syndrome Association of Minnesota during Give to the Max Day can enhance your giving in the following ways:

  • Win a Golden Ticket – $1,000 will be given to a random donor’s charity every hour. You could be that donor!
  • A $12,500, $5,000 and $2,500 prize grant will be awarded to the top three medium nonprofit organizations (budgets under $1 million, but over$100,000
  • )Help us win the grand prize! The three nonprofits that get the most people to donate during this event will receive $12,500 for first place, $5,000 for second place and $2,500 for third place.
