DALLAS, TEXAS (February 2018) —DFW Foster Parent Association has been selected from more than 2128 charitable organizations across the country to compete in Brackets For Good 2018. Starting Friday, March 2, DFWFPA will rally supporters to advance in an online single-elimination bracket-style fundraising tournament with a grand prize of $10,000.

The DFWFPA advocates for all those who care about children and their families. We work supportively with foster, adoptive, and kinship families, and with local foster parent associations and agencies who care for the children, they serve. DFWFPA participates in state and local social service work groups, advisory boards, commissions, and councils. As informed resource parents and team members, the DFWFPA community shares their years of experience to provide their input and guidance in areas such as general care and procedures, accessing mental and physical health services, and teen care. DFWFPA believes that every child has the right to a safe, stable, permanent, and loving family.

“Our vision is to involve all parts of the community to improve the quality of family life in the Dallas Fort Worth area and to influence child welfare policy and practice, both locally and state-wide.”

Indianapolis-based Brackets For Good pairs with corporate and nonprofit sponsors to host online bracket-style fundraising tournaments in philanthropic communities around the United States. Brackets for Good has raised more than $6.4 million for charitable nonprofits since its 2012 kick-off contest in Indianapolis.

Participating nonprofits rally enthusiastic donors to out-fundraise their opponents to advance. Through the excitement, localized marketing and corporate involvement, nonprofits earn increased exposure, gain access to free fundraising tools, and are introduced to new donors. Dollars from donors translate to points, giving participants the opportunity to advance in each markets’ bracket. Competing nonprofits keep donations received during tournament play, no matter how many rounds they advance. The winning organization in each tournament receives an additional championship grant.
