Round Up Your Rent $1 Per Month for The Champion Cares Foundation
It’s always nice to do business with a company that gives back. Champion’s founders were born and raised in central Ohio and are deeply committed to supporting the communities in which we do business. One of the ways we do this is through The Champion Cares Foundation, which supports organizations like The YWCA Family Center, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Ohio, Boys and Girls Club of Columbus, The Reeb Avenue Center, Habitat for Humanity, and Children’s Hunger Alliance.
We are proud of the difference we’re making, but even more proud that we’re doing it together with the help of our residents. You can join our mission by rounding up your rent $1 every month. It may not seem like much, but with nearly 4,000 units, we have the potential to make a huge impact. Plus, Champion matches each resident’s donation dollar for dollar. Last year alone, The Champion Cares Foundation distributed more than $330,000 to our partner organizations.
