What you need to know about Give to the Max Day
Early giving starts November 1. All donations from November 1-17 go towards our total on November 18.
There is a random $500 prize grant drawn each day of early giving Nov. 1-17.
On November 18 there is a $500 prize grant randomly drawn every quarter hour.
On November 18 there is an additional $1,000 prize grant drawn hourly.
The minimum donation is $5. If you are donating $50 and divide that into 10-$5 donations, it gives us a better chance at winning an extra prize grant.
Yes, there is still a $10,000 Super-sized Golden Ticket randomly drawn at midnight on November 18. We have our paws crossed every year they draw our name. Could this FINALLY be our year?
We are grateful for your continued support. As we look back on the last 12-18 month there have been many challenges, but the generosity of our donors remains strong. We could not fulfill our mission of furthering people’s independence and quality of life through the use of Assistance Dogs without each of you. We love that you share the same passion for dogs that help us provide independence to individuals with physical disabilities, veterans/first responders with PTSD and facility dogs.
