Description

About Give to the MAX:


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 a blast of online giving —$14million 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.


Voice-A-Thon:


Green Card Voices celebrates Give to the MAX day every year by hosting a 24 hour fundraising event. Community members can come visit an art exhibit at our fundraising headquarters (our office), meet storytellers, watch GCV videos, eat delicious food, and help us raise the money we need to promote immigrant voices! 


There will be drawings for prizes, give aways, and LIMITED EDITION GCV exclusive prints. Breakfast, lunch and dinner will be provided.


We have an ambitious goal this year: raise $24,000 in 24 hours! That's $1,000 per hour. WE CAN DO IT WITH YOUR HELP! 


What do Volunteers do?


There are a number of things we need volunteers to help with throughout the day. More than anything, we want our "Voice-A-Thon" to feel like a fun community event, and we need your help to make sure it runs smoothly. The more people we can gather together, the better! There will always be a staff member on hand to help out as well.


Main responsibilities will include: 

  • Decorating the office/headquarters: This will happen in the morning, and will include setting up exhibits, putting out food, hanging signs/decorations, and setting up ways to visually track donations.
  • Monitoring donations online
  • Updating social media
  • Helping to produce/package thank-you gifts for donations
  • Taking Photos
  • Sending emails
  • Making phone calls to community members
  • Connecting with community members who stop by our "headquarters"


We ask that volunteers sign up for a time slot (2-3 hours) to come help out at our headquarters located in Midtown Minneapolis, MN!!
