Dubbed the ‘Great Minnesota Give Together’ and forever known as GiveMN day in Minnesota, there were at least 25 different technology related fundraising campaigns participating.
Last year, 53,339+ donors gave over $15 Million in one 24 hour window, up from $13m the year before. But while Minnesotan’s braced themselves for a new national record, GiveMN’s technology partner Razoo did not.
The site was either completely down or intermittent from around 2 – 8pm today, a large chuck of the 24 hour window. Roughly factoring an hourly run rate of $600k in donations over that time frame would be $3.6m.
While the ultimate impact on the final figure will never be known, the bottom line is a Minnesota comeback.
