Bloomberg’s recent #BracketsForACause initiative has garnered attention worldwide, showcasing the generosity and commitment of global leaders in philanthropy. Each leader pledged $20k, resulting in an impressive $1 million impact. Among the notable figures is Jenny Johnson of Franklin Templeton, who selected Rock The Street, Wall Street (RTSWS) as her chosen cause.

The initiative, spearheaded by Bloomberg, aims to support various charitable organizations while adding an exciting twist to the tradition of March Madness. Johnson’s selection of RTSWS underscores the organization’s dedication to bringing the M in STEM to diverse high school girls, with a focus on financial and investment fundamentals.

Other leaders participating in the initiative include David Solomon of Goldman Sachs, supporting the Food Education Fund, Ken Griffin of Citadel, championing Achieve Miami, and Peter T. Grauer of Bloomberg, who backs The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research. The collective impact of these contributions is significant and demonstrates the power of philanthropy to effect positive change.

RTSWS expresses profound gratitude to Jenny Johnson and all the leaders involved in the initiative for their generous support. Their commitment not only amplifies the mission of RTSWS but also inspires hope and empowerment among young women pursuing careers in finance and STEM.

Additionally, special recognition goes to the BBG team for their outstanding work on the interactive piece: Bloomberg’s 2024 March Madness Brackets for a Cause. Michael Boyle, Julian Burgess, Brittany Harris, Jeremy Diamond, and Cédric Sam are commended for their efforts in creating an engaging platform for charitable giving.

As RTSWS joins in the excitement of March Madness, the organization extends its heartfelt appreciation to Jenny Johnson and all the leaders for their unwavering support in making a difference in the lives of young women around the world.
