What's different this time is this is the first year that GiveMN is allowing K-12 public schools to fundraise on the site.

During Give to the Max Day, 2012 public schools will be eligible for prize grants in the form of hourly “Golden Tickets” – an hourly drawing to add $1,000 to a person’s donation - randomly selected from donors who gave during each hour of the event. At the end of the event, one public schools donor will be drawn to receive a Super-sized Golden Ticket, adding $10,000 to their donation!

Last year, $13.6 million was raised in Minnesota on Give To the Max Day, with GiveMN.org, the group behind the annual giving day, handing out another $4,161,929 in incentives for groups that met benchmarks for individual donations and dollars raised.
