GiveMN bounces back for record Give to the Max day 2013

giveMN_logoOnline fundraiser GiveMN has crowdfunded over $17.1m dollars for 4,437 nonprofit and education orgs from 52,371 donors for Give to the Max Day 2013

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.
