Give to the Max Toolkit

Your help is needed to promote!
Getting the word out is critical, and sharing on social media is really effective. This page will give you the tools you need to promote Give to the Max Day for Eagan High School Forensics Boosters. 

What you can do:
  • Download images to share on your social networks from the Toolkit. Below you will find images for Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter. Scroll a bit further, and you'll also find sample text to use for posts.
  • Share on social before and on November 14. Even though Give to the Max Day is November 14, people can actually start giving on November 1. Promoting the event before November 14 will mean more gifts before November 14 and on Give to the Max Day. 
  • Share on Insta, Twitter, Facebook—wherever you can. Even if you don’t typically post on Facebook, but you are friends with your family’s friends, let them know they can support your team by supporting Eagan Forensics. 
  • Include a link to givemn.org/EaganForensics with your posts, even if a caption doesn’t allow live links. 
BONUS:
If you want to go bigger, create your own fundraising page by going to our GiveMN page and selecting the big FUNDRAISE button. You can use images from the Toolkit below (scroll down to Fundraising Page Tools at the bottom of this page) to help you build your page. Or you can use one of your favorite team member! Images should be 770 x 570 pixels. You'll find team logos there, too. Then share your fundraiser several times during the week before and on the day of November 14.

It’s almost Give to the Max Day! When you support the Eagan Speech and Debate teams through Give to the Max, you are giving students a voice.

Sample Post on November 13 Include a photo and use this text or a text you compose. 

Participating in Debate and Speech transforms lives. Students who compete on these teams build confidence, develop critical thinking skills, and find their voice. Tomorrow is Give to the Max Day—a giving holiday in Minnesota. Please support the Debate and Speech teams by making a donation at givemn.org/EaganForensics 

Sample post on November 14 Include a photo and use this text or a text you compose. It's fine to have a few different posts with different photos on Give to the Max Day, as it's very common for organizations to do this on this day.. Your friends may only see one or two of your posts. 

Give students a voice by making a gift to support the Eagan Speech and Debate teams on Give to the Max Day today! Your gift will make Eagan Forensics eligible for “golden ticket” gifts. Please make a gift of any amount now at givemn.org/EaganForensics. Thank you!
