Lace up your sneakers and take off your warm ups! Inspired by college basketball brackets, Brackets For Good is an online fundraising tournament where 64 nonprofits compete for donations while earning increased awareness along the way. The tournament winner takes home a $10K grand prize.
Nextech is competing for the first time in the BFG tournament. We survived our first two rounds, narrowly defeating GiGi’s Playhouse and Families for HoPE. Round 3 is well under way, and we need your help to score as many points as possible to ensure we score more points than Golden Retriever Rescue and Community Education (GRRACE) and make it to the Engaged 8.
Scoring is simple. For every dollar you donate, Nextech gets one point. And just like any game, every point counts, no matter how much time is left in the game, or, in this case, the round.
$26 brings Hour of Code to a student. A one-hour introduction to computer science, the Hour of Code is designed to demystify "coding," to show that anybody can learn the basics, to broaden participation in the field of computer science and spark career interests in technology.View Hour of Code in Action
$108 makes CS education possible for one HS student. Nextech facilitates yearlong programs to bring grade-specific CS curriculum and PD to K-12 school educators. An investment in one teacher can bring CS education to hundreds of HS students in a single year.Learn More about CS Education
$276 funds a team building activity for our Catapults. The Catapult program is an immersive experience for high school students that - on paper - develops tech skills, fosters industry relationships and cultivates passion for tech careers. But the impact to students is so much more.Hear from the Catapults
