|A primer on GTMD, for those who might be unfamiliar: GTMD is Minnesota’s annual giving holiday. It is a grassroots giving event that helps Minnesota non-profits (such as ACW) fundraise and continue to pursue/expand their mission in their communities.
Organizations can set up fundraiser pages on GiveMN.org, which is tallying GTMD donations starting from November 1st until midnight on the 17th – and is distributing over $100,000 in prize grants to organizations that are fundraising for GTMD! To emphasize, prize grants will be distributed for early donations as well, so you are welcome to donate early, starting on November 1st! In any case, be sure to bookmark the link on the red Donate button above and set a reminder to donate between November 1st – 17th!
After you make your contribution, you can choose the project(s) that you want to help fund with your donation by commenting at the bottom of our fundraiser page in the Comments section, or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you would prefer to donate via check, please do so by sending it to Art To Change The World, 2323 Monroe St. NE, Minneapolis, MN 55418. If you want your donation to go to a specific person or project, please indicate it on the memo line.
The following donors have collectively agreed to split the total raised as a match for GTMD – please consider joining them. To join our matching donor list, contact us at email@example.com. You are most likely committing to $300 – $400 – according to how much we raise.

Lastly, consider doing a “holiday charity exchange” with friends and family for Give to the Max Day this year! You can support causes that are meaningful to them by agreeing to donate to one another’s fundraisers. Here’s what Layl McDill has to say about it:
“In 2020, I wanted to engage my friends and family in ACW’s Give to the Max Day fundraiser, so I posted to them that I would donate to their charity if they donated to ACW. It was a fun way to spread the love of the organizations that are meaningful in my friends’ and family’s lives and ACW received donations from people outside the organization. My family even decided to do this ‘charity exchange’ instead of giving gifts that year.
Watch for your chance to donate to ACW on Give to the Max day on November 17th and consider how you can invite your friends and family to donate too – maybe you can come up with a creative way that works for you!”
We hope you can help us reach our $2,000 goal this Give to the Max Day – be sure to follow us on social media to keep up with our fundraising campaign communications as GTMD approaches!
