The Do Good Challenge is both a fun competition and a real-world opportunity for teams to advance the causes they’re passionate about and work towards solving some of the world’s most pressing problems. During the Challenge, University of Maryland students further their favorite causes by volunteering, fundraising, promoting awareness, or starting or advancing a social enterprise.
New this year:
Seed funding is available to all Do Good
entrants looking to jump start their projects or social enterprises this fall. Teams can apply to the Do Good Challenge Booster Fund for up to $500 to be used to amplify their impact over the course of the Do Good Challenge. Click here

The Do Good Challenge, now in its 3rd year, will be launching in a new format in February 2014! For the first time, the No Limits Social Impact Pitch Competition, which has historically been part of the Social Enterprise Symposium, has joined forces with the Do Good Challenge! Teams will now enter the Do Good Challenge in one of two ways:
● Projects: Students do as much good as possible over the 8-week competition
● Ventures: Social Enterprises leverage the Challenge to scale their impact
Semi-finalists, finalists, and winners will be chosen from both groups.
If you are interested in participating in the event as a mentor, angel investor, or sponsor, please send us an email: firstname.lastname@example.org
The Do Good Challenge is open to all University of Maryland undergraduate and graduate students. Groups that participated in last year’s Challenge are eligible and encouraged to participate again. Last year’s winner is ineligible to compete as the same project, but students from that group may compete with another group for another cause this year. Likewise, alumni, students from other institutions, and just about anyone else can participate in the Challenge by joining an existing UMD student team or project.
