Capitol Lien is thrilled to be making charitable donations on behalf of our clients as our holiday gift of giving this season!
On Thursday, Nov. 18, 2021, we joined thousands and participated in the 13th annual Give to the Max giving event. Give to the Max is a statewide giving event that raises millions each year for more than 6,000 causes across Minnesota and beyond. Considered Minnesota’s holiday for generosity, donors have given more than $225 million since the inaugural Give to the Max Day in 2009.
“We are honored to be able to give back, even more, this holiday season. Our partnership with Give to the Max allows us to share a successful year with the groups and organizations that are meaningful to our employees and customers. These are all such great causes and we have appreciated hearing the many impactful ways in which these funds can be used.” – Brad Abrahamson | Capitol Lien President
“Last year, we saw more donors and organizations participating in Give to the Max than ever before, crossing the $30 million mark for the very first time,” said Jake Blumberg, executive director of GiveMN, the nonprofit that hosts Give to the Max. “Nonprofits and schools across Minnesota are still meeting record levels of need around the COVID-19 pandemic, disasters like this summer’s wildfires, continuing to advance social justice, and much more. We’re encouraging everyone to keep their foot on the generosity pedal this year and help organizations continue to be resilient for the work ahead of them.”
Below are some of the local and national charities that our clients have chosen for us to donate to on their behalf.

Give to the Max announced on Friday, November 19, 2021, that it saw the largest day of giving yet! Together with 50 States, and 38 countries across the world, $34.3 Million was raised for 6,457 nonprofit organizations. Capitol Lien is so honored to have come together with our clients to contribute and make a difference.
