A recent shift in donors has been especially encouraging to the Engagement Team. Maggie says, "2014 was the first year that we really had a surge in first-time donors who used to be clients … Now that they're not clients anymore, they want to give back to people who are in their positions, which has been incredibly moving for us. We have clients sending in one dollar or five dollars—just whatever they can spare."Read More

Brackets for Good began in 2012 when a couple NCAA March Madness fans decided to create an engaging way to help raise money for Indianapolis non-profits. They created an online bracket system that resembles the NCAA tournament. Starting with 8 organizations, they raised $32,000 for the organizations. In the 2nd year, they raised $85,000 for 16 organizations.
In 2014, there are 64 non-profit organizations that are set up in the bracket. One non-profit organization is paired up against another. The organization that raises the most money within the 1st round advances to the 2nd round. All money raised goes to the organization and there are prizes for winning the tournament. To find out more, here’s a link to a 60 second video about the competition [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jskPh8hBh_8]
The Clinic is participating in Brackets for Good this year and it all begins tomorrow night. As you can tell, our staff is dressed and ready for the competition. If we are going to progress to the next round, we need your help!
