How it Worked

On Nov. 15th our communities came together for 24 hours of online giving. Every donation you made during Give to the Max Day 2012 helped qualify your nonprofit or school for prize money and awards, furthering the impact of your donation.

There are several ways your donation went further on Give to the Max Day.

Leaderboard prize grants – nonprofits which raised the most dollars earned a spot on one of the four leaderboards. There are prize grants for each of the top 10 spots on all leaderboards. Prizes are as follows: 1st place - $12,500; 2nd place - $5,000; 3rd place - $2,500; 4th-10 th place - $1,000.

Golden Tickets – One nonprofit donor and one K-12 public schools donor was randomly chosen every hour to have $1,000 added to their donation. One nonprofit donor and one K-12 public schools donor was also be selected randomly from throughout the 24 hours of giving to have $10,000 added to their donation!

Matching grants – hundreds of nonprofits offered a dollar-for-dollar match so you can double your donation.
