Donors ‘Will Walk the Checks to Our Door’: MN Weathers Give to the Max Crash

GiveMN raised a record-breaking amount of money despite a website crash that lasted five hours.

Donors ‘Will Walk the Checks to Our Door’: MN Weathers Give to the Max Crash

GiveMN brought in a record-breaking $17.1 million in its fifth-annual Give to the Max Day, but website crashes made the event fraught with frustration for both nonprofits and donors.

Giving on GiveMN.org was impossible for hours after the website went down. Yet donors stepped up the pace after the site came back online and gave about $1million more than last year’s $16 million.

Patch asked readers what they thought the crash meant for local nonprofits. Check out their answers in the Storify post above. (Some users on mobile browsers won’t be able to see the widget. Click here if that’s the case for you.)
