Brackets for goodWe are excited to announce we have been chosen from over 200 nonprofits to participate in Brackets for Good. The competition works just like the NCAA bracket does during March Madness. Each week, we will be paired with another central Indiana nonprofit to face off in a competition to see who can raise the most money for their organization. $1=1 point.

Girls in Indiana are up against a number of difficult trends from being bullied, considering and attempting suicide, having negative body image, and most unfortunately being victims of sexual assault. These trends threaten many aspects of the lives of Indiana girls: their safety, happiness, and ability to succeed in school. Our mission is to inspire all girls to be strong, smart and bold in order to become healthy, educated, and independent women. Your donations through Brackets for Good will go to programs that help girls realize their potential and inspire them to be the best versions of themselves!

Round one kicked off at 8 pm, Friday, February 27th! Through the generosity of Bev Middaugh, Bright Ideas in Broad Ripple, and Barb Fleming, BAF Corporation, every dollar you give before April 30 will be matched $1 for $1 up to $16,000!

Whoever earns the most points in this first round will move on to the second, and so on. In order to donate and help keep us in the competition just follow these steps:
