"Brackets for Good" pits Indiana nonprofits against each other in March Madness-style tournament

INDIANAPOLIS -- As March Madness gets fired up another bracket-style challenge is heading into its final three weeks.

Brackets for Good is an Indianapolis-based fundraising tournament for nonprofit charities.

The event pits the charities against each other to drum up donations and for a chance to win a championship grant.

Just like the NCAA’s tournament, Brackets for Good pits higher seeds against lesser “underdog” charities.

Indianapolis is just one of 11 cities across the country hosting a tournament this year. In each of those states, the winning charity will receive a $10,000 grant.

There’s also a nationwide bracket that includes 31 states. The winner of that bracket will win the $100,000 championship jackpot.  

The teams currently in the tournament’s “Supported 16” include:

  1. Exodus Refugee Immigration
  2. Neighborhood Christian Legal Clinic
  3. Indianapolis Chamber Orchestra
  4. Brooke’s Place for Grieving Young People
  5. Indiana Sports Corp
  6. Misty Eyes Animal Center
  7. Humane Society of Hamilton County
  8. Joseph Maley Foundation
  9. Kids Dance Outreach
  10. E5 Foundation
  11. IndianaFIRST, Inc.
  12. Hoosier Burn Camp, Inc.
  13. Center for Victim and Human Rights
  14. NeuroHope of Indiana
  15. Nextech
  16. Golden Retriever Rescue and Community Education Inc.
