2016 Dodgeball Tournament: Play - Sponsor - Donate!

We’re looking forward to seeing you at the 2016 Dodgeball Tournament for friendly competition, team bonding, the chance to take home the OctoTrophy, and best of all, the opportunity to make an impact with local organizations.

In 2016, we’re hoping to more than double that and donate $100,000+ through new pricing and sponsorship opportunities. With these combined efforts, the 2016 proceeds awarded to At the Crossroads (Youth Homelessness), Precita Eyes (Arts), One Degree (Social Services/Poverty-fighting Resources), and Californians for Justice (Educational Justice) will be able to make a greater impact in the community!

In the name of?: We’re so excited to announce 2016’s amazing local nonprofits recipients:

At the Crossroads: Our mission is to reach out to homeless youth and young adults at their point of need, and work with them to build healthy and fulfilling lives. Our innovative model focuses on young people who do not access traditional services and are disconnected from any type of consistent support. We work with young people who others have given up on, who would not get help without us. We remove common barriers to service by bringing our counselors onto the streets and shaping our support services around the needs of each individual client. Our goal is to help our clients build outstanding lives, not just lives of subsistence.

Precita Eyes Muralists Association: As an inner city, community-based mural arts organization, we seek to enrich and beautify urban environments and educate communities locally and internationally about the process and the history of public community mural art. We maintain a deep commitment to collaborating with the various communities we serve. Our dedication to collaboration guarantees that creative work produced is accessible, both physically and conceptually, to the people whose lives it impacts. We intend to bring art into the daily lives of people through a process which enables them to reflect on their particular concerns, joys and triumphs.

One Degree is a nonprofit technology-driven organization that is revolutionizing the way low-income families access community resources. We create modern tech-driven solutions that make it easy for striving families to access, manage, and review nonprofit and government services. We currently operate two major products: One Degree and One Home. Thousands of people in the Bay Area rely on One Degree’s core platform to access health care, food banks, employment services, and much more. Through OneHomeBayArea.org, we are working to ensure that every family has a safe and stable home by making it easy to find and apply for affordable housing.

Californians for Justice believes that young people are the leaders we need to create the healthy, just, and vibrant schools all of our communities deserve. We ensure that students have the opportunity to grow as leaders, and work with them to win campaigns so that every school and community can thrive.

All contributions are managed by Bright Funds
