Have you started getting the emails about Give to the Max Day 2014? Nonprofit organizations all across Minnesota have been feverishly working to put their best foot forward so you’ll donate to them on November 13 through the GiveMN.org website.
A lot of Minnesotans will have to ignore email and turn off Facebook notifications that day. The flood of marketing material asking for your donation can be overwhelming. Savvy organizations (like BOP!) are getting started early because this year because you can schedule your donations ahead of time and spend the 13th secure in your philanthropic virtue.
Since BOP has a national conference, we also reach out to supporters outside of Minnesota. All donors count, so please consider a donation to support the BECAUSE conference, regardless of where you live. Then put April 16 – 19, 2015 on your calendar and join us at BiReConUSA & BECAUSE 2015. Check out our GiveMN.org page for more information about how we will put your investment in BOP to work.
We thank you for your patience during this important fundraising time, we know a lot of organizations will be clamoring for your attention. GiveMN offers prizes based on the amount raised and the number of donors who participate on November 13th with organizations divided into different categories based on their annual budget and if they are a school or not. They also pick one donation every hour and add $1000 to it! There is a lot of incentive money on the line and every nonprofit dreams of winning a big prize at the end of the day.
The minimum donation is $10 and every donor counts. So do yourself a favor: head on over to our GiveMN.org page to schedule your donation now so you can rest easy the rest of November. Don’t forget to let your friends know about your generosity on Twitter and Facebook so they can be a part of the fun, too!
BECAUSE 2020 Cancelled
The BECAUSE leadership team and the BOP board have been reviewing forecasts for what this Fall will look like including continued COVID hotspots, limitations on travel, and how people are going to be feeling about being large groups. We feel the most responsible action at this time is to cancel BECAUSE 2020. We have explored moving the conference on line as many conferences and gatherings have done and find it is not the best option for BECAUSE.
The BOP board is developing virtual community building that we hope will help bridge this time for our community. Please check out BOP's Facebook Page, Facebook Group, Meetup Group, and Twitter to stay informed of upcoming events.
We are currently in discussion with our location, Wellstone Center, and our planned speakers and special guests to make BECAUSE 2021 one of the best ever. We hope you will join us in October 2021.
