MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Nonprofit organizations are again asking Minnesotans to “give to the max.”

The third annual “Give to the Max Day” will be held Nov. 16. The goal is to raise as much money as possible for Minnesota charities in 24 hours.

The campaign has raised more than $33 million for more than 5,000 nonprofits since debuting in 2009.

Last year’s Give to the Max Day drew nearly 42,600 donors.

This year there are several incentives for nonprofits and donors. Those include a new leaderboard structure with three tiers of prize grants, an UpTake “web-a-thon” live from Mall of America, a video contest, and new giving gift cards.
