DALLAS, TX (February 16, 2018) – Camp Summit has been selected from more than 2,128 charitable organizations across the country to compete in Brackets For Good 2018. Starting Friday, March 2, Camp Summit will rally supporters to advance in an online single-elimination bracket-style fundraising tournament with a grand prize of $10,000.
Camp Summit provides barrier-free outdoor experiences for children and adults with disabilities on their 460-acre campground in Paradise, TX. The funds raised through the Brackets For Good Tournament will help to provide life-changing camp experiences to campers with disabilities and their families.
In response to their selection for the tournament, Camp Summit CEO, Carla Weiland said, “We are excited to take part in the first ever Brackets For Good Tournament in Dallas. There are so many excellent organizations in our community and this tournament will help us to generate even more excitement around giving back and getting involved in a fun, new way.”
Indianapolis-based Brackets For Good pairs with corporate and nonprofit sponsors to host online bracket-style fundraising tournaments in philanthropic communities around the United States. Brackets for Good has raised more than $6.4 million for charitable nonprofits since its 2012 kick-off contest in Indianapolis.
Participating nonprofits rally enthusiastic donors to out-fundraise their opponents in order to advance. Through the excitement, localized marketing and corporate involvement, nonprofits earn increased exposure, gain access to free fundraising tools, and are introduced to new donors. Dollars from donors translate to points, giving participants the opportunity to advance in each markets’ bracket. Competing nonprofits keep donations received during tournament play, no matter how many rounds they advance. The winning organization in each tournament receives an additional championship grant.
