For the first time ever, Charleston Animal Society was invited to enter the “Brackets for Good” Charity Tournament that has nonprofits from around the country compete for a $100,000 grant from AT&T. We made it through the first round of play, but came up shy in the second round and are looking forward to doing it all again next year.
“The good news is that we received 180 donations from our supporters over the course of two weeks, totaling more than $12,800,” said Charleston Animal Society Director of Philanthropy Jennifer Winchester. “We can’t thank you enough for your generosity and we wish the best to all of the wonderful charities who are moving forward into the “Sweet 16″ round and beyond!”
Brackets For good is the sport for nonprofits. Inspired by college basketball brackets, Brackets For Good is a charitable, online fundraising tournament where up to 64 hand-selected, local nonprofits LIKE CHARLESTON ANIMAL SOCIETY with a 501(c)3 status in good standing compete for donations while earning increased awareness along the way. All participating nonprofits, including Charleston Animal Society received a chance at winning $100,000 unrestricted grant courtesy of the tournament’s presenting sponsor, AT&T.
