Support SMU during ‘Give to the Max Day’

Give to the Max Day is a day for Minnesotans to come together to raise millions of dollars for thousands of nonprofits and schools in 24 hours – from 12:01 a.m. to 11:59 p.m. Nov. 14.

Last year during Give to the Max Day, Saint Mary’s University finished fifth in the state, raising $68,561 with 318 gifts.

Help Saint Mary’s in the “Race for 1st Place” as it competes against other Minnesota colleges and universities to win prizes.

First place (the group or organization raising the most money) takes home an extra $10,000. The top 10 place finishers get an added bonus.

Additionally, 24 “Golden Tickets” ($1,000 prizes) will be given randomly every hour. One “Golden Ticket” worth $10,000 will be given at 11:59 p.m. on Nov. 14.

Schools that raise the most money during each of the five power hours will also win a bonus $1,000 prize grant. Make gifts during 2 to 2:59 a.m., 5 to 5:59 a.m., 5 to 5:59 p.m., 6 to 6:59 p.m. and 11 to 11:59 p.m. to help SMU’s odds.

Go online anytime to to schedule your gift for Nov. 14. Your gift can be broken into smaller amounts to increase Saint Mary’s chances of winning extra prizes.

Be a part of the excitement (and the competition). Show your Cardinal pride by making a gift on Nov. 14!
