INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (February 18th, 2016) — You’ve heard of March Madness, but how about fundraising madness?
The fifth annual “Brackets for Good’ tournament kicks-off with a pep rally Thursday evening. The fundraiser is set-up like the NCAA tournament, but it’s a competition for non-profits in our area — the more money you raise, the more you can advance. 64 Indy non-profits are serving as “teams.” Each group keeps all their donation money, no matter how long they last, but the winner gets a $10,000 bonus prize from corporate sponsors.
“Participating in philanthropy should be fun and that’s what Brackets for Good is all about,” said BFG Co-Founder Matt McIntyre.
“It’s competitive fundraising and an opportunity to see your dollars have an impact immediately,” he said.
The competition has helped raise more than $1.3 million dollars for local charities since it started in 2012.
