Thank you, Give to the Max Day donors

The results are in: 116 donors gave $11,723 to the Minnesota Literacy Council on Give to the Max Day, Minnesota's annual 24-hour online give-a-thon.

We used balloons to celebrate donors' generosity and to promote a $50,000 challenge grant from past and present board members, the F.R. Bigelow Foundation and The Saint Paul Foundation.

Each time a gift was made on Give to the Max Day, our Tutor Trainer Rob added a balloon to his bunch -- two when the gift was match-eligible! Supporters were challenged to give early and give often to send Rob up, up and away. We shared the highlights of his day on Facebook.

Our challenge grant remains open. Learn more or donate now and we'll multiply your generosity!
