May 4—GiveMN, the nonprofit behind the annual Give to the Max Day, has launched a new initiative that runs through May 11.

Dubbed Spring Forward MN, it encourages Minnesotans to rally support and donate to nonprofits and schools and those that are on the front lines of the pandemic. It's also putting an emphasis on groups led by people of color and nonprofits that are historically underfunded.

As of Monday afternoon, Spring Forward MN had raised more than $420,000 for 936 organizations around the state. Some of the participating nonprofits include American Indian Community Housing Organization, YWCA St. Paul, Celtic Junction Arts Center, Sustainable Farming Association of Minnesota, St. Paul Fire Foundation, the St. Paul and Ramsey County Domestic Abuse Intervention Project and the Hallie Q. Brown Community Center.

Last year's Give to the Max Day set a new fundraising record for GiveMN of nearly $30.5 million.
