raiserooflogoUPDATE: You helped us raise over $3,000 to help fund the “Raise the Roof at Dorothy’s” project! THANK YOU!

It’s a fantastic start to raising funds for our developing capital campaign for structural improvement at the Dorothy Molter Museum.

What WAS Give to the Max?

November 15 is the annual Give to the Max Day (GTMD) where we run a very short but focused fundraiser for the Museum. This event has the potential to garner over $10,000 in prize money and we already won a Golden Ticket for $500 in prize money in one of the raffles held every 10 minutes!!

For every donation of $10+ made for our fundraiser, we get entered into the drawing for MORE!

This year, the Museum is focusing on the “Raise the Roof at Dorothy’s” campaign, which is a part of a developing capital campaign for structural improvements needed at the Museum. Projects include reshingling and foundation leveling of both the Winter and Point Cabins, drainage improvement around the Visitor Center, decking replacement and several more.


You don’t have to live in or be from Minnesota to contribute!

Our goal is $4,000 but additional funds raised will contribute to the larger campaign to complete all of the projects.

What if I don’t want to donate online?

We understand that in today’s world, online consumers must be wary. GiveMN.org takes your information security very seriously and is committed to protecting your private and sensitive data. However, sometimes it’s easier to donate with paper and that’s ok!

We are participating in this online-only event on November 15 because there are opportunities to “win” prizes of $500 up to $10,000 in funds! For every $10+ donation made online, the museum is entered in a raffle-like drawing – every time!

This is why Give to the Max Day is such an important fundraiser for us and why we encourage you to place a donation online today, November 15.


Can I send a check to the Museum instead?

Of course! And we appreciate your generosity. However, if you are comfortable and able, we request you make your donation on Give to the Max Day (November 15) to MAXimize our chances of winning up to $10,000 for this project.
