#GiveAtHomeMN – Give to Children’s Minnesota’s Urgent Needs Fund

GiveMN is an organization that leads community fundraising efforts like Give to the Max Day. The organization felt compelled to help during the COVID-19 pandemic, so they created #GiveAtHomeMN—a virtual fundraising event taking place May 1-8 for all nonprofits across Minnesota.

#GiveAtHomeMN for Children’s Minnesota

Children’s Minnesota needs you – our supporters, contributors, advocates – more than ever. COVID-19 has impacted us in many ways, and we need your help to continue to care for the most amazing people on earth—kids!

When you participate in #GiveAtHomeMN and give to Children’s Minnesota, you are donating to our Urgent Needs Fund—a fund that allows us to place philanthropic support where it’s needed most.

How your #GiveAtHomeMN donations help Children’s Minnesota

As a nonprofit, we rely on donations from our generous community now more than ever. If you are looking to support COVID-19 efforts, please consider donating. Here are just a few examples of how we are using funds donated right now:


We will use funds to gather supplies that continue to keep our patients, their families and our staff safe and healthy.

Technological support

Technological support allows us to offer services like telehealth, or virtual care, which gives our staff the chance to treat patients from the safety of their own homes.

Financial support

Families who have a child with health needs who also might be facing the reality of being out of work due to COVID-19 can receive financial help from us for their bills.

When you donate…

  • $30: It will provide supplies to keep our patients and staff safe.
  • $60: Can provide milestone celebration kits for patients.
  • $125: Will provide technology support for telehealth services.
  • $250: Will support family financial needs during uncertain times.
