March Madness Charity Fundraiser

| March 14, 2011 | 5 Comments

It is March Madness time again! Definitely one of our favorite times of the year so we wanted to do something here at Under30CEO for the tournament. We are holding a charity fundraiser that everyone can join and donate to a charity of their choice. 100% of all funds will be going to charity.

Deadline is Thursday, March 17th

How it works

Step 1: Everyone is encouraged to go to our fundraiser page and make a $10 donation along with a suggestion to a charity you want it to go to if you win. When you make your donation do not forget to include a charity of your choice in the box that says “Leave a message with your donation”.

Step 2: Go to our group on ESPN.com and fill out your tournament bracket using the password “under30ceo” (Make an ESPN account if you don’t already have one). You can fill out up to 10 brackets just be sure to also donate $10 for each bracket you submit. Even if you are not familiar with the teams or the tournament just have some fun and pick some winners! At the end of the day all the money goes to a good cause. Don’t forget you have to submit the bracket by March 17th at the start of the first game.

Step 3: Sit back and cheer for your picks! The championship game is April 4th after which we will announce the results of the fundraiser on Under30CEO.com. We will also make updates throughout the tournament on the site or you can follow everyone’s submissions in the group on ESPN.

The winner’s bracket will have all the money raised donated to the charity they chose.

It’s simple, fun and for a good cause so we hope everyone takes a few minutes to get involved…We know you’re doing it at your offices and with your friends so take some time to help a charity out.
