TierPoint’s BraveIT is evolving, from an event to an awards program, celebrating charitable organizations with compelling STEM programs. All selected organizations will receive a $2,000 donation from TierPoint – and three of the eight have the opportunity to receive additional support – up to $10,000 more, based on online voting.
BraveIT – 2021 focus
With a new and expanded focus on philanthropy, BraveIT 2021 will support charitable groups offering educational programs that help inspire and prepare various populations to pursue STEM careers.
We start this year with eight such organizations. In the coming weeks, we’ll share their stories and encourage the public to vote for the one organization they believe most effectively achieves its mission.
All eight will receive a $2,000 donation. The organization with the most votes will become our grand prize winner, earning an additional $10,000 donation. And the organizations with the second and third-most votes will each receive an additional $5,000. Winners will be announced during a live webcast on Thu., Sept. 23 at 1:00 p.m. ET.
