Give to the Max 2020
Get more bang for your buck!
BENCHS will once again have generous donors who have offered to match dollars. So, if you feel moved to donate, your donation will be doubled - and we will save that many more lives.
Each time you make a gift during Give to the Max, you could help BENCHS win part of the $100,000+ Prize Pool! In fact, there are 145 chances to win during Give to the Max Day and Early Giving, beginning November 1! The most popular prizes, Golden Tickets are random chance drawings. Each gift you make during Give to the Max enters you to win money for BENCHS! If GiveMN randomly draws your gift for BENCHS, we will receive an additional prize grant! All you have to do is make a gift (or lots of gifts!) and each gift will automatically entered into the prize drawings for each associated prize grant. This means your gift could be eligible for as many as three drawings! If you'd like to see which nonprofits are winning, GiveMN be updating their Golden Ticket Winners page as they draw them throughout the first half of November and then on Give to the Max Day!
