Columbus - Ohio - US


COLUMBUS, Ohio - March 13, 2019 - PRLog -- With the launch of new fundraising contests built around the 2019 NCAA Tournament, GiveGame combines the excitement of March Madness with the satisfaction of doing good. By tapping into the massive enthusiasm around March Madness (70 million brackets filled out in 2017), GiveGame ( has turned a blockbuster cultural event into a powerful fundraising opportunity.

With an eye towards making giving fun, and fundraising easy, GiveGame's user-friendly web-based platform allows cause supporters to launch a custom March Madness fundraiser in under five minutes. Each contest creator gets their own campaign webpage where their supporters "Donate + Play" in support of their cause. It's a fun, new way to engage friends and family to raise money for verified 501(c)(3) nonprofits. Entry fees for each contest are donated to the nonprofit as tax-deductible donations, minus a 10% GiveGame platform fee. Cause champions can launch their March Madness fundraiser at

In addition to streamlining campaign creation, GiveGame has also simplified the traditional bracket. Rather than forcing participants to pick the outcome of 63 games, GiveGame donors simply choose 16 teams: one #1 seed, one #2 seed, and so on. With no brackets to fill out or return and no entry fees to collect, March Madness fundraising contests on GiveGame simplify the entire process for champions and donors without sacrificing fun.

"March Madness generates billions of dollars in bracket fees every year. We're thrilled to bring the excitement of the March Madness bracket pool into a fun, new format that benefits nonprofits," said GiveGame Founder and CEO, Matt Golis. "By gamifying giving, we're looking forward to raising a lot of money for great causes around the world."
