What is Give To The Max Day?
Give to the Max Day was created in 2009 to launch GiveMN, a collaborative venture led by Minnesota Community Foundation and many other organizations committed to helping make our state a better place. That initial spark touched off an outpouring of generosity — $14 million in 24 hours. Since then, Give to the Max Day has become an annual tradition. Every year thousands of organizations and individuals generate donations and excitement for Minnesota causes that are working to improve the quality of life for all Minnesotans. Give to the Max Day has become a national model for giving days.
GiveMN links donors with organizations that are working to make Minnesota a better place. Its online giving website, GiveMN.org, enables charitable giving any time and any place, allowing people to donate with ease and enthusiasm. GiveMN brings innovation, energy and fresh ideas to Minnesota generosity.
GiveMN is an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Explore GiveMN.org today.
Why Donate to Town Square Television?
Your donation means we are able to continue telling the stories of our community. We televise about 1,500 new, uniquely local programs every year. You are helping us to bring you programming like Minnesota Vixen Football, high school Game of the Week, local school and holiday concerts, local news stories on Insight 7, government meetings, candidate information and election coverage, talk shows like The Good Stuff, and even town festivities like parades, graduations, and royalty coronations. Many of these are produced by our staff with the help of much-needed volunteers, but more than half are produced by local people and organizations who need our help to tell their stories through video.
With the ongoing disappearance of many forms of local media, you help us to remain the only uniquely local media station located in the same community with our viewers. Your donation makes it possible for us to provide video production equipment and helps our professional staff to teach affordable monthly classes on how to make your own video. Our staff and public access-produced videos are distributed not only on cable TV, but online - LIVE and On-Demand - and on social media.
Your donation helps exercise the American right to freedom of speech. Our channels provide an outlet for many individuals, community groups, and organizations that might not otherwise have a way to voice their opinion, share their faith, or send a message to the viewing public. We help our fellow non-profit organizations get their message out about donating and volunteering for their missions. Food Banks, Homeless Shelters, Youth Organizations, Mental Health Agencies, Fundraisers, Volunteer Events, and many others all need help telling their stories effectively - and affordably!
We are also excited to receive a matching donation of $500 from the South St. Paul Lions Club, to help us reach our goal for Give to the Max Day!
Thank you very much for your support! We pledge to use these resources to keep on telling the stories of this community.
