Support the Binienda Center this March Madness! 

At The John J. Binienda Center for Civic Engagement at Worcester State University, we connect students and faculty with volunteer and experiential learning opportunities offered by an assortment of community partners such as Jumpstart, Habitat for Humanity, and the Reyes House. These are win-win-win programs—providing valuable services to recipients, expanding the capabilities of our partners, and helping you to build a strong foundation in civic participation while honing your skills. Through these activities, we help Worcester State meet the challenge established by the Massachusetts Board of Higher Education to provide meaningful civic education and engagement to our students. Our commitment enabled WSU to earn the President's Honor Roll in Community Service, the Community Engagement Classification by the Carnegie Foundation in 2015 and be named a member of NASPA’s Lead Initiative on Civic Learning and Democratic Engagement.

March Madness - The 2019 Day of Giving Competition Overview

Help your favorite Worcester State team, department, or club raise money and win the March Madness Giving Competition! Registered teams will go head to head to see who can get the most donors per team member in (4) 12-hour rounds. Teams with the most donors will advance to the next round. Help your team advance to the next round and win the grand prize.

Generous donors have pledged matching funds to the winning teams:  
1st Place: $1,000 
2nd Place: $500 
3rd Place: $250

Competition Rules: 

  1. Donations must be $5.00 or more.
  2. To allow smaller teams to compete evenly with larger ones, results will be calculated based on the size of the team. EXAMPLE: 10 person team with 20 donors = 2 donors/member. 2 person team with 20 donors = 10 donors/member. Therefore the 2 person team is the winner!
  3. Donations must be made on this web page to qualify.
  4. Multiple gifts made to one team, using the same credit card, will be counted as one donor.
  5. Gifts must be made by 11:59 PM on 3/20/2019.
