Cook County values its nonprofits

Cook County is blessed in many ways: Lake Superior, talented people, spectacular scenery, a rich cultural history, dynamic businesses, strong community connections and so much more.

As a small northern community, we are fortunate indeed.

Over the years we have worked hard together to create an amazing array of community resources and on Nov. 14 an important statewide event invites us all to celebrate this fact. Give to the Max Day is a one-day online “Great Minnesota Give Together” that makes a simple and important request – please give to the community nonprofits you love.

Cook County is fortunate to have many dynamic nonprofit organizations that are both inspiring and essential. Our nonprofits serve, inspire, feed and heal us. They are woven into every facet of our lives. Give to the Max Day is our opportunity to affirm that our nonprofits are “truly Superior.”

Many Cook County nonprofit organizations are part of Give to the Max Day, and there is no better way to signal your support of their efforts than giving a gift of any size so your voice is heard. Together, let’s show all of Minnesota that Cook County values and believes in its nonprofits.
