MLJ Adoptions is celebrating because we have been selected to be one of the 64 Indianapolis based nonprofit organizations to participate in Brackets for Good!

MLJ Adoptions will use donations made during this tournament to provide assistance to families adopting children with special needs. We are so excited to be able to use this opportunity to raise awareness about children in need of families and to raise funds to be able to provide adoption grants to make the adoption journey more affordable.

What is Brackets for Good?

Brackets for Good is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization that helps build awareness, raise funds and expand marketing capabilities for local nonprofits through competitive, online fundraising tournaments. The winner of this year’s bracket-style tournament will receive a final prize of $10,000. This nonprofit organization was started in Indianapolis by Butler University graduates passionate about basketball, and giving nonprofit organizations tools to be more successful.

The competition will begin at 8 PM on Friday February 26th!

Winners will advance to the second round beginning March 4th. Like previous years of the March Madness basketball playoffs, there will be 5 rounds of competition. Sixty-four teams will begin on February 26th and one will be declared the winner on April 1st.

Donations are made through Brackets for Good and participating nonprofit organizations retain 100% of the donations raised during the tournament, regardless of advancement. If you enjoy the adrenaline of competition, you can set your donation to be counted at the last minute of the round as a BUZZER BEATER! The organization with who raises the most funds during the round moves on to compete against the next challenger.
