GiveMN hits $100 million in charitable giving

GiveMN, the website that funnels charitable giving to Minnesota nonprofits and schools, has reached a milestone.

The organization has helped facilitate more than $100 million in charitable giving since it first began operating in the fall of 2009.

That's an average of $20 million raised a year. The money has gone to nearly 8,400 nonprofits and schools.

GiveMN reports the average donation is $132.

The news comes just weeks before the website's annual event "Give to the Max Day" which last year raised $17.1 million.

This year Give to the Max Day is slated for Thursday, Nov 13.
