Give to the Max Day 2015

What if you could turn a $10 donation into an additional $1,000 donation for Magnuson Christian School?

237x131_DonateNowJoin us on November 12, 2015, for Give to the Max Day – and you could help make that happen! Make your donation on and help us continue to change lives at Magnuson.

On November 12, every gift made on will be entered into an hourly drawing for a $1,000 GiveMN Golden Ticket to be awarded to a Minnesota nonprofit or school. That adds up to 12 opportunities for you to help us receive an extra $1,000!

Here’s the really exciting part: One donation made on will be randomly selected at noon and at the end of Give to the Max Day to receive a $10,000 Super-Sized GiveMN Golden Ticket!

The more gifts we generate on on November 12, the more our chances increase to receive that additional $10,000 donation. Imagine what we could do with $10,000!

Be sure to mark your calendar and make your gift on November 12 by clicking donate now.

Gift for Growth Gala

The Magnuson Gifts for Growth Gala is a dinner and auction that makes donating to Magnuson Christian School fun! It is Magnuson’s largest fundraising event, and last year raised over $70,000 for our school.

This year, our theme is “Making an Impact.” We truly believe that Magnuson is Making an Impact in the lives of our students, and we are challenging you to Make an Impact on Magnuson through your generous donations. Every dollar counts as Magnuson educates and engages our children, preparing them to Make an Impact for Christ, now and in the future.

A $100,000 matching grant has been offered to Magnuson Christian School for the Gifts for Growth Gala and Auction. Any gifts given at the auction will be matched up to a maximum of $100,000.

If you’d like more information about donating to or attending the Gala, please visit Gifts for Growth.

Tuition Bucks, SCRIPS

Families, teachers, friends, and others purchase gift certificates (SCRIP) from popular retailers at a discounted rate. The rate varies from 2%-20% and the difference or rebate amount is split between the family’s tuition account or designated classroom or fund and the Magnuson School.  The gift certificate or gift card (SCRIP) is then used like cash at the retailer, where it’s worth face value. It is just shopping a little differently.  Click here to learn more about the Magnuson Tuition Bucks program.
