Starting February 24, 2017, Brackets For Good, sponsored by mGive, is providing a chance for Denver-based nonprofits to win a $10,000 grand prize and the Billiard Education Foundation (BEF) is on the bracket!
Brackets For Good hosts online, bracket-style fundraising tournaments every March in communities around the United States. Participating nonprofits rally enthusiastic donors to out-fundraise their opponents in order to advance.
Billiard enthusiasts around the country are more than familiar with tournament brackets. “Here’s a chance for the entire community to compete as one. Help us advance to the next found on the bracket and enjoy a little March Madness of our own! If you’ve been considering making a donation, now is a great time to do so,” added BEF Exec. Dir. Samm Diep-Vidal.
Brackets For Good 2017 Denver sponsors include: mGive, Simploy, Jet Linx, Bloomerang and Lids.
How the tournament works
The tournament tips-off Feb. 24 with 64 charities, each paired in friendly, yet competitive match-ups against another nonprofit. Charities advance through the rounds by rallying their supporters and scoring more points than their opponent ($1 raised = 1 point). At the end of each round, the nonprofit with the most points in the individual match-up advances to the next round, the points are reset and the fundraising continues. The single elimination, bracket-style tournament will continue through March until a champion is crowned on March 31.
