Wellspring participating in Brackets for Good for first time

By | March 5, 2018

For the past three years, WellSpring has applied to be one of 64 central Indiana charities chosen to participate in Brackets For Good. Well, the third time was the charm and they were selected and are the only Morgan County charity participating. Below is a brief description of the event.

The Tournament

Every March, Brackets For Good hosts a single-elimination, bracket-style fundraising tournaments across the country that raise much-needed funds and awareness for nonprofit organizations of all sizes.

Participating nonprofits retain the donations raised and all donor information during the tournament, regardless of advancement. The tournament champion in each city will also receive a grand prize donation from the title sponsor.

The six-round tournament takes place over five weeks beginning on the first Friday in March, with each of the first four rounds lasting a full week and the semifinal and championship round each lasting three days.

The tournament begins with 64 charities, each paired in a competitive match-up against an opponent. Charities advance through the rounds by rallying enthusiastic donors to scoring more points than their opponent. Every $1 donated through https://bfg.org/equals 1 point scored for the chosen charity. 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 until a champion is crowned.
