Well, we took our obligatory post-Give-to-the-Max-Day nap. Now we're alert, alive, and ready for the future! Before we get really rolling on our next project -- JUNE -- we want to take a moment to recap the big day.
52 awesome donors
WOW! We had 52 incredible donors supporting #SUSPACE through out the day, as well as many other artists and companies that gave support with their retweets and shares. Whatever you did to make it possible, whether it was dollars, good vibes, or kind words... thank you. We are so grateful to be a part of this thriving community.
+ $250 matching gifts
Our super fiscal sponsor, Springboard for the Arts, promised us a $10 match for our first 25 individual donors! It's safe to say that we crushed that goal. Those Springboard folks sure are a special bunch.
+ $200 super special bonus
On top of their generous match, Springboard awarded us with a special bonus for having the second most total donors out of all the Incubator projects. Aw, shucks, friends... we like you, too! <3
= $2,259 for #SUSPACE!
Thanks for getting under the umbrella with us!

You can Give to the Max any day.
We know Give to the Max day is a lot of things. It's definitely an exciting day for Minnesota nonprofits and arts organizations, but it can be a little noisy on the interwebs. There are so many awesome causes and projects out there that it can get overwhelming (in the best way, but still!). We want you to know that your Give to the Max Day can be any day you want. It could be today, next month, or on March 13 (we've heard that's a really good day... just, like... in general). ;-)
Visit https://givemn.org/fundraiser/SavageUmbrella any day you want to support #SUSPACE and Savage Umbrella. We will give you all the high-fives, thanks, and endless adoration. Together is better... and we're better together with you.
