Mindgrub Announces Junior Achievement of Central Maryland as 2023 Mindgrub Classic Non-Profit Partner


Mindgrub Technologies has announced that Junior Achievement of Central Maryland will serve as the 3rd Annual Mindgrub Classic non-profit partner. The tournament will take place on Monday, May 22nd at the Eagles Nest Golf and Country Club. This event brings together local executives and community members to network and have fun while supporting this year’s partnership with Junior Achievement of Central Maryland (JA).

“It has been an honor to host this tournament three years in a row,” says Todd Marks, Founder & CEO at Mindgrub. “We’ve had the privilege of connecting different facets of our community, while raising money for a number of local organizations that are positively impacting students every day. I’m particularly excited about this partnership with Junior Achievement and their phenomenal STEM program.” 

JA of Central Maryland works with students in grades K-12 to provide hands-on learning activities that teach the value of hard work, the importance of making sound financial decisions, and the power of entrepreneurship. The organization offers programs such as JA Finance Park, JA BizTown, and JA Company Program that give students the opportunity to experience different aspects of real-world business and economics. Within the simulation, students will receive science, technology, engineering, and math education as part of their experience.

“For the first time, a student may actually see themselves on this career path—and we know jobs in tech continue to be the key to Maryland's and America's futures,” says Paul Kappel, Jr., CEO & President of Junior Achievement of Central MD. “Careers in STEM—those in science, technology, engineering, and math—pay well now, allow us to keep pace with technological changes, and provide long-term growth in a globalized economy.”

WordPress VIP is Mindgrub’s partner and the tournament’s Gold Sponsor, while First National Bank has graciously sponsored a Hole-in-One contest with a $25,000 prize.
