And here's one of those special ways you can help Hawk Ridge with Give to the Max Day on Thursday, November 13th! You might be wondering "What's the big deal with Give to the Max?", well here's why...

What if you could help Hawk Ridge Bird Observatory win $2000 or even $20,000 just by giving 10 bucks?

On Thursday, November 13th, Give to the Max Day, you have a chance!!
SCHEDULE YOUR DONATION NOW! (NOTE: All scheduled donations will transact randomly on November 13, throughout the day. On Give to the Max Day, the giving “thermometers” will update to reflect scheduled donations for the day)

Give to the Max Day through amplifies your giving impact in a number of ways:

Win a Golden Ticket! $2,000 will be given to a random donor's charity every hour. You could be that donor! (Yes, please donate at 3am or 4am OR simply schedule your donation now for random drawing time!).

At the end of Give to the Max Day, TWO donations from across Minnesota will be randomly selected for a $20,000 Supersized Golden Ticket (one for a nonprofit and one for a school)! Help us increase our odds by making your gift on November 13 by clicking on: or by visiting and searching for Hawk Ridge Bird Observatory.
