The Otto Bremer Foundation is excited to announce their entry into the grant-making community of southeastern Minnesota. To celebrate this event, the Otto Bremer Foundation will generously match donations made by any individual through GiveMN.org to selected charitable organizations benefiting southeastern Minnesota. Organizations may earn up to $100,000 in matching funds before the full $1 million match is reached during the month of March.
Not only is each donation to selected southeastern Minnesota organizations doubled during the campaign, but donations have the chance to increase by an additional $1,000 or $10,000. From March 1 through March 31, every donation made on GiveMN.org to participating organizations will be entered into a daily drawing for a Bremer Boost—a $1,000 addition to the donation. On March 31, one donation will be randomly drawn from all March Millions donations to receive a $10,000 Bremer Boost.
