On November 12, the Carlson School community came together to raise more than $74,000 for Give to the Max Day. The one-day campaign engaged 175 donors—from recent graduates, to first-time donors, to repeat benefactors. These gifts will support scholarships, facilities, and more to enrich the experience of hundreds of students.
Gifts through the school's crowdfunding website totaled $26,639.60, earning a $25,000 dollar-for-dollar match in full, which was generously offered by Chip Glaser, '75 BSB, and K.C. Glaser, '07 BSB.
For the first time, the University of Minnesota Foundation sponsored $50,000 in prizes on Give to the Max Day. The Carlson School raised more dollars than any other University of Minnesota cause through the U online giving and crowdfunding websites, thus earning the first-place grand prize of $12,500. Plus, the Carlson School won the bonus prize of $2,500 for being the U fund with the most donors. Furthermore, two Carlson School donors were randomly selected for "All-Day Prizes," worth $1,000 and $3,000. In total, donors brought an additional $19,000 in UMF-sponsored prize money to benefit the Carlson School.
