Give to the Max Day, November 18th, is just around the corner! Give to the Max Day is a state wide giving event in Minnesota and an important fundraiser for Avenues. This year we’ll be raising money for vital supports, like Avenues health and wellness team. Your support can help provide things like on-site nursing, mental health support, and a physician on staff.
This year we need your help! To meet our goal of $50,000, we need community members, businesses, faith groups, and ERG’s to make peer-to-peer fundraisers for Avenues. It’s easy, and a fun way to engage your community. Plus, Avenues will be announcing a giving match soon! That means that every dollar you raise will have double the impact.
Peer-to-peer fundraisers are personal, online fundraisers that your community rallies behind. They are similar (and as easy to set up) as Facebook birthday fundraisers!
All you need to do is:
- Visit Avenues for Youth’s GiveMN Giving Page
- Click Fundraise
- Set up your fundraiser (it takes less than five minutes!)
- And share your fundraiser on social media and email

November is a time to be thankful for what we have, and it also happens to be National Youth Homelessness Awareness Month. Peer-to-peer fundraisers are not only a way to give back, but also help Avenues spread the word about our critical work.
So let’s get started! Create your peer-to-peer fundraiser before November 1st. Gifts made from November 1-18th count towards Give to the Max and will be matched. And remember, peer-to-peer fundraisers are only successful if you share them! Make sure to let your community know by posting your fundraiser on social media, sending emails, and letting friends and family know. Together, we’ll raise $50,000 for health and wellness at Avenues!
