Explore Your Truth, Find Your Voice at the Twin Cities Men's Center.
I hope you will consider donating to the Twin Cities Men's Center during Give to the Max Day, the annual fundraising celebration in Minnesota taking place on Thursday, November 18.
Since 2009, Give to the Max Day has become Minnesota's annual giving holiday, raising nearly $225 million in its first 12 years. Every year, thousands of organizations and individuals generate donations and excitement for Minnesota causes that are working to improve the quality of life for all Minnesotans.
This year for Give to the Max Day, the Twin Cities Men's Center will be honoring our longtime anger management facilitator, John Hesch, on the news of his retirement. For 25 years, John has selflessly led, participated, and transformed the 'Men Helping Men with Anger' program, changing the lives of countless men and their families in the Twin Cities for the better.
While every dollar helps drive our mission forward, Thursday is an opportunity to invite a friend, colleague, or family member to learn more about why Twin Cities Men's Center has been a treasured space for nearly 50 years. Our goal this year is to raise $1,500 during Give to the Max Day from at least 25 first-time supporters––people like you!
A gift of $20, $50, or $100 will go far in helping us sustain programs at the Twin Cities Men's Center. And––as an extra incentive to participate––each gift made during Give to the Max Day will enter us in a raffle to win special prizes for Twin Cities Men's Center! For example, cash prizes will be awarded to high-performing nonprofits every 15 minutes Give to the Max Day.
