Give to the Max Day is an annual giving day in Minnesota, where donors from around the state come together and make a positive impact by making financial contributions to organizations and missions that they care about. For many, it has become a giving holiday. If you're not in MN, you're still welcome to participate in this day of philanthropy!  Join Minnesota and consider Lutheran Volunteer Corps when you are giving to the max on November 12th.
