GTMD15LogoHorizontalColorSafePlease consider Old Highland when making your GTMD donations. The Old Highland Neighborhood Association is a 501(c)(3) and that makes your contributions to Old Highland eligible for charitable tax deductions. Virtually all of our funds cover expenses for 3 primary events: The annual spring clean-up at the end of April, the Minneapolis/St. Paul Home Tour on the last weekend in April, and Blooming Boulevards on Memorial Day weekend. Because we have no paid staff, virtually 100% of your contribution goes to program expenses.

GTMD Reversed Logo

Please donate to Old Highland Neighborhood Association on Give to the Max Day.

Your donation on Give to the Max Day may help us receive an additional donation of $2,000. How? On November 13, every gift made on will be entered into an hourly drawing for a $2,000 GiveMN Golden Ticket to be awarded to a nonprofit organization. That adds up to 24 opportunities for you to help us receive an extra $2,000!

Here’s the really exciting part: At the end of Give to the Max Day, one donation made on will be randomly selected to receive a $20,000 Super-Sized GiveMN Golden Ticket.

The more gifts we generate on on November 13, the more our chances increase to receive that additional $20,000 donation. Imagine what we could do with $20,000!
