The Do Good Challenge

Challenge: Friday, February 10, 2014 – Sunday, April 6, 2014
Finals: TBD
 

 

The Do Good ChallengeThe Do Good Challenge is an 8 week prize competition inspires Terps to make the greatest social impact they can for their favorite cause. Students team up to volunteer, fundraise, promote awareness, or advance their own social enterprise during an eight-week period. The Challenge will conclude with the Finals in late spring where teams have the change to win $5,000 for their cause or venture.

This year CSVC has partnered with the Center for Philanthropy and Nonprofit Leadership in the Public Policy School to create two separate tracks that teams can enter:

  • Projects: Student-run initiatives that maximize impact for a particular cause or organization through volunteering, fundraising, and/or awareness efforts during the course of the Challenge.
  • Ventures: Independent, student-founded and student-run organizations intended to be self-sustaining entities in the long run, whose efforts during the Challenge focus on taking the organization to the next level.
