Have Fun Supporting a Great Cause!

Do you love college basketball?

Would you like to help the children of community and economic development and housing professionals after a devastating loss?

Join our 10th annual NCAA Basketball March Madness Bracket Challenge fundraiser during this year's college basketball tournaments in support of The Bollinger Foundation!

The Bollinger Foundation raises money for the education and support of children who have lost one or both parents, with priority given to families in which either the deceased or surviving parent works in the community development, economic development, or housing fields. Learn more.

Last year, we raised almost $6,000 for The Bollinger Foundation! This year, our goal is to raise $10,000 but we can’t do it without you!

Win a Prize!

The participants with the strongest brackets at several points during this year’s men's and women's tournament games will receive cash prizes, courtesy of our fantastic sponsors: International Economic Development Council (IEDC), Camoin Associates, Lightcast, Ronnie L. Bryant, LLCTPMA, and Winner Partners.

  • $50 per tournament for the best "Sweet 16" brackets
  • $50 per tournament for the best "Final Four" brackets
  • $300 per tournament for the best overall brackets at the end

Thank You to Our Sponsors for Providing the Prize Money and Donating to the Cause!

Step 3: Fill Out Your Bracket(s)

You will receive an email with instructions on how to fill out your women’s and men’s brackets on ESPN's Fantasy sports website after you register. You can fill out one men's and one women's bracket per person. Prizes are awarded for the best brackets in both tournaments.
