The Rainy Lake Medical Center Foundation is among thousands of Minnesota non-profit organizations looking to benefit from an annual giving campaign.
Give to the Max Day 2021 is set for Nov. 18, however, early giving is already underway. The effort provides a great opportunity to provide financial support to the RLMC Foundation (listed as the Falls Memorial Hospital Foundation) at GiveMN.org. Donations provide critical support to help Rainy Lake Medical Center remain resilient in serving our communities.
Throughout the course of the COVID-19 pandemic, the past two years have been filled with relentless challenges. The great people of Borderland and beyond have consistently stepped to the plate to support our facility. Ongoing support and giving is crucial to ensure our communities remain vibrant and strong.
What is Give to the Max Day?
GiveMN launched in 2009 as a collaborative venture led by Minnesota Community Foundation and many other organizations committed to helping make our state a better place.
To generate excitement for our launch, organizers created something called Give to the Max Day. That spark touched off an outpouring of generosity — $14 million in 24 hours. Since that trial run in 2009, Give to the Max Day has become an annual tradition. Every year thousands of organizations raise money to improve the quality of life in Minnesota and communities around the world.
Organizers say they are thrilled how Minnesotans have embraced Give to the Max Day. But GiveMN is more than a one-day giving extravaganza. We provide a giving website available year-round to link people with nonprofits and schools and make giving soar. In our first decade, more than 700,000 donors have given nearly $300 million to 13,000 nonprofits and schools using GiveMN.org.
And since 2015, we’ve been redefining the way we grow giving. Now that almost all nonprofits are raising money online, we are building programs and products to assist the nearly 70% of Minnesota nonprofits who say they aren’t confident that their current fundraising efforts will allow them to continue to sustain their missions.
Support the RLMC Foundation
Rainy Lake Medical Center’s Foundation is a group of individuals who are passionate about improving healthcare in our community. Their goal is to cultivate relationships and philanthropic support to enable the creation of new facilities, upgrade of current facilities, and acquisition of new equipment and medical technology.
Employee Giving plays a large role in the success of the Foundation. ESP (Employees Supporting Patients) is the employee giving club of the Rainy Lake Medical Center Foundation. The goal of ESP is to connect employees with opportunities to support the Foundation in promoting healthcare and wellness in our community. Many RLMC employees are members of ESP by contributing a portion of each paycheck or through annual donations. This generous group of employees has donated funds in order to purchase new equipment for Rainy Lake Medical Center. Major donations from the employee giving group include multiple defibrillators, knee therapy machine, special chair for knee replacement patients, and a mixing hood for the Pharmacy.
The Rainy Lake Medical Center Foundation strives to help improve services, create a culture of giving, and meet the needs of healthcare delivery to the people who live, work, and play in our community.
