Score points with JMF in Brackets for Good 2017

Lace up your sneakers for JMFinBFG17. The online, bracket-style fundraising tournament tips off Friday, February 24th at 8:00 PM.

March in Indianapolis = Brackets for Good Madness

Time to lace up your sneakers for Brackets for Good 2017! What is #BFG17 and why do you need to put on your shoes? Let me explain. Every March, Brackets for Good, or BFG for short, hosts an online, bracket-style fundraising tournaments for nonprofits around the United States. Participating organizations, like JMF, compete to out fundraise our opponents. All teams keep every donation made to them throughout the tournament, and the champion receives an additional $10,000 from a generous corporate sponsor.

Brackets for Good is a wonderful platform for JMF to raise much-needed funds in support of our seven programs to serve children of all abilities. BFG also helps us to connect with other local nonprofit organizations (introducing JMF to new Service Day partners, for example) and is a vehicle to share JMF’s mission to a much larger community than may otherwise be possible.

We need our team of our fantastic supporters to help us move through the bracket when #BFG17 tips off on Friday, February 24. Keep an eye on your social media feeds, as we will send updates on specific ways you can donate and help support the mission of JMF.

Go Team!
