Give to the Max Day 2012 sets another STLF record!
With such a big day like Give to the Max Day STLF likes to do a little analysis to get a bigger picture of what makes it so successful.
This year, 415 individuals came together (online) November 15 to support STLF and our programs! This one 24-hour period comprises almost 1/4 of our total fundraising for the year and makes a huge difference in the financial aid we can offer and the leadership training we can provide.
This year, our stats-man Nick "Nickers" Lindberg put together a little analysis to help us zoom out and not just see every individual who helped make this possible, but see how folks are connected to STLF.
The numbers you'll see below are nothing short of incredible and inspiring. From current participants to people who just love what STLF does, each number represents a person who took the time to donate and chose STLF to leverage his or her philanthropic dollars. We are so so so appreciative and grateful for every contribution and, as you'll see below, each donation makes a difference and adds up to big things!
