As we approach the season of giving, there's a special day on Minnesota's calendar that resonates with the spirit of generosity – Give to the Max Day. This day, observed annually on the third Thursday in November, is a statewide movement that unites thousands of organizations and individuals to support causes close to their hearts. At Spave, we're proud to be a part of this philanthropic celebration, and we invite you to join us in making a meaningful impact on the causes that matter. 

The Significance of Give to the Max Day: Give to the Max Day isn't just another fundraising event; it's a testament to the power of community and the collective impact we can achieve when we come together.
