Thank you for helping Healing TREE by helping us raise $3,809.46 during this years Brackets For Good! Every March, Brackets For Good hosts a single-elimination, bracket-style fundraising tournament in multiple cities that raises much-needed funds and awareness for nonprofit organizations of all sizes in each community. Nonprofits participate at no cost and retain 100% of the donations raised during the tournament, regardless of advancement.
The tournament champion in each city will also receive a grand prize donation of $10,000 from the title sponsor. The six-round tournament takes place over five weeks beginning on the last Friday in February and ending on the last Friday of 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 local charities, each paired in a competitive match-up against an opponent. Charities advance through the rounds by scoring more points than their opponent. Every $1 donated through 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.
Part of the funds being raised in Brackets For Good 2017 will go towards producing our first short film on the topic of gaslighting, with the help of our friend and Healing TREE Artist Advocate, Emily Althaus from Orange Is The New Black.
