Cass Lake- Leech Lake Tribal College is gearing up for Give to the Max Day, November 14th.
Give to the Max Day is one of Minnesota’s and LLTC’s biggest days of online giving. Last year 5,400 nonprofits and educational institutions raised 21.0 million dollars total in 24 hours during Give to the Max day. LLTC themselves raised $26,000.
This year LLTC’s goal is to raise $30,000 in personal donations and matching gifts, including a $15,000 matching gift from Leech Lake Band of Ojibwe Gaming division. The college plans to do this through hosting a number of events on campus to garner in person donations such as a LLTC Laker’s basketball taco sale, KOJB broadcasts, a silent auction and a live performance off campus.
The money raised during the 24 hour period will be used for basic operational funds, and various LLTC clubs/teams activities. Leech Lake Tribal College New President Raymond Burns said the day of giving is a fantastic way for community members to invest in the students and the college’s future.
“Give to the Max is an opportunity for the community to show its support for the most important part of the Leech Lake Tribal College, its students. These donations go to help supplement the programs that help students’ college experience go from great to super and it’s amazing to be part of their success stories. Come join us for our Give to the Max event and be a part of that success,” said Burns.
Community members interested in donating can find the Give to the Max Day schedule online at the college’s Facebook page, and by visiting GiveMN.org. Mailed donations are also accepted in the form of a tax deductible check. If you have questions about supporting LLTC or you’d like to tour the college, you can visit them at 45 Little Wolf Rd NW, Cass Lake, MN from 8am-4:30pm.
