Brackets For Good Baltimore
We are so proud to announce that the Maryland Historical Society has been selected to participate in Brackets for Good Baltimore Tournament!
What is Brackets for Good you ask?
BFG is a single-elimination, bracket-style fundraising tournament where 64 Baltimore non-profits compete to raise donations and awareness for their organization. During each round, the Maryland Historical Society will be paired in a competitive match-up against another non-profit. $1= 1 Point, so in order to advance to the next round, we need to score more points (raise more dollars) than our opponent. After advancing, the points are reset and the fundraising match-ups continue until a champion (hopefully us) is crowned AND wins an additional $10,000!! The best part? Every team gets to keep the money they’ve raised, so everybody is a winner!
Check out the video below to learn more about the March Madness of non-profit fundraising.

- Round One of the tournament starts on Friday, February 24 at 8:00PM and runs until the buzzer goes off on Friday, March 3 at 7:59:59PM.

Every dollar raised is critical in our efforts to preserve Maryland's vibrant history! This tournament is a wonderful (and fun!) way to show your support for the Maryland Historical Society, as well as learn about other non-profits in our community!
The announcement of our Round 1 opponent will be released on February 10th, so be sure to check back here then to see who we face-off against first! It will also be your chance to see MdHS' role in the tournament and the other 63 competing non-profits!
