Give to the Max for History
By: grabitsdm | November 19, 2009
Many Minnesota historical organizations participated in an online/social media-fueled fundraising event dubbed "Give to the Max" through GiveMN.org on Tuesday November 17, 2009, which raised approximately $14 million for charities across the state. The St. Paul Pioneer Press reports on Washington County Historical Society, which then prompts the question of how well did others do? Any new donors? Any big surprises? What did you and your organization learn from participating in the event? If you did not participate, can you share your reasons?
