Last year, more than 42,000 donors logged on to GiveMN.org and gave over $10 million to Minnesota charities in 24 hours during Give to the Max Day. Together, we have the power to raise millions of dollars for thousands of nonprofits. The Saint Paul Almanac, with GiveMN.org—a first-of-its-kind giving website for nonprofits in Minnesota—is working to create a stronger nonprofit community for Minnesota.
GiveMN.org’s online giving platform allows you to easily find organizations that match your giving goals, support them through secure credit or debit card donations, receive automated tax deductible receipts through email, and conveniently track and record your donations in a single online location. You can now also fundraise for your favorite causes—like us!—on GiveMN by creating a fundraiser page.

Why give to the Saint Paul Almanac?
At the Saint Paul Almanac, we know we all do better when we know each other. Our goal is to use storytelling to help everyone in Saint Paul become friends and neighbors—one big block club of Saint Paulites who understand and support each other in good and difficult times.
Arcata Press organizes the Saint Paul Almanac as a people’s meeting space for sharing the stories of our community through our annual book, public readings, a community editor mentorship program, and other activities that showcase and honor local, diverse voices and artists.
We publish work of nationally acclaimed local writers like Gordon Parks and Garrison Keillor alongside emerging writers’ work and writing from new immigrant, student, elder, and other communities.
In our partnership with the Saint Paul Public Schools, 2,000 students receive Almanacs as part of their social studies curriculum, and we sponsor an annual student writing contest for grades 5–12 as well.
Our goal is to work mutually with St. Paul communities to support a diverse, connected, and engaged city of people centered around local literature and art.
