This month, 30 nonprofits will have the opportunity to win $10,000 through Brackets for Good Cincinnati, a fundraising tournament that inspires community members to learn about and rally behind charitable nonprofits.
Brackets For Good, a nonprofit based in Indianapolis, hosts online, bracket-style fundraising tournaments every March in communities around the U.S. It has raised more than $6.4 million for charitable nonprofits since 2012.
Participating organizations will rally donors to out-fundraise their opponents in order to advance. Through the tournament promotion and corporate involvement, nonprofits earn increased exposure, gain access to free fundraising tools, raise funds and meet new donors. Supporters score points by making donations to help their favorite causes advance in the tournament.
This is the second time Cincinnati has hosted a tournament. Last year Brackets For Good Cincinnati raised $251,832.
Starting March 9, those who visit cincinnati.bfg.org to make an online donation can help their favorite nonprofit organization advance and win the $10,000 championship grant awarded by Dewey’s Pizza. The tournament runs until April 6, when the champion is crowned.
