The Fine Art of Giving

It’s Give to the Max Day in Minnesota, which means it’s a great day to consider giving to any number of worthy nonprofit organizations throughout the state. Of course, you can donate to these groups any day of the year. But there’s something fun about a day dedicated to giving, and in many cases, depending on the organization, a gift given today will be matched.

Arts and cultural organizations rate high on the list of our family’s donations. If you’re looking for ways to support the arts in Northfield, I know these groups would greatly appreciate a financial contribution:

Northfield Arts Guild
Northfield Fine Arts Boosters
Northfield Youth Choirs
Vintage Band Festival 2013
I Cantanti Chamber Choirs

Other local groups I am proud to support include the Friends of the Northfield Public Library, the Friends of Way Park, the Northfield Healthy Community Initiative, the Save the Northfield Depot ... the list goes on and on. For stories about these and other organizations, check out Northfield Patch’s great summary here.

If you can’t afford a financial gift, remember there are many ways you can help nonprofits through the gift of your volunteer time.

Have a wonderful, philanthropic day!
