Principals on a Rollercoaster

Get your school community excited and engaged for Give to the Max Day by registering to represent them on the Orange Streak roller coaster at Mall of America on November 15. We will be collecting registrations here through November 8, 2012 for principals to ride the rollercoaster in 2-hour shifts (with some breaks with your "pit crew") throughout the day. We will notify you before November 15 to confirm your 2-hour time slot. You are encouraged to bring a “pit crew” to the mall to take photos/video, tweet or post to Facebook, and share email updates with your school community.

You may set your own fundraising goal and let your school community know that you are riding the roller coaster to raise money for your school. Local news media is expected to cover the event and the "Principals on a rollercoaster" for their morning and evening broadcasts.

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!
