For the first time, after being implemented in July, 2014, The Champion Cares Foundation was able to show its true potential for a full year in 2015.
At each Champion property we implemented a “Round Up Your Rent $1” program, that residents could opt into during the term of their lease. With a huge help from all our residents we are happy to say that combined our residents collected $7,593 in donations! It doesn’t stop there though, since Champion then matches each resident’s donation, dollar-for-dollar. The 2015 Round Up Your Rent program raised a total of $15,186.
Back in August of 2015 we also hosted our annual Champion Cares Golf Invitational. From the Invitational we were able to raise and donate $50,000, thanks to the generous help of 144 golfers and 43 sponsors.
Finally, the grand total the Champion Cares Foundation donated in 2015 was $67,130. That total was split up across our three main local charities; YWCA Family Center, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Ohio and Children’s Hunger Alliance.
Thank you to all who have opted into our program and helped us give to these great local charities. If you are interested in learning more about the Champion Cares Foundation, click here.
