MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Minnesota's Give to the Max Day website is operating again after heavy traffic crashed the site.
The site crashed around 1 p.m. Thursday, leaving prospective donors unable to make contributions. The site remained down until about 6:30 p.m.
Before the crash, thousands of donors had responded to Give to the Max Day, raising more than $9 million by noon.
Augsburg College was among the many anxious nonprofits cranking out emails to supporters by late afternoon.
More than 30,000 donors had responded before the site crashed.
Last year the day raked in more than $16 million for 4,400 charities and schools.
