At Champion, we believe in giving back by making a positive contribution to the communities in which we do business in. One of the main ways we do that is through our Champion Cares Foundation, the mission of which is to support people within the community who are in need with the help of our business relationships, residents and team members.
Our company has sustained major growth in the last few years. We now have access to a large audience and an opportunity to use our resources to give back to those in need.
To help us carry out our mission, we’re proud to partner with many organizations that share our beliefs and goals. We have chosen to contribute to organizations that align with our mission, including The YWCA Family Center, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Ohio, Habitat for Humanity and Children’s Hunger Alliance.
With your help, we have the opportunity to make a big impact on Central Ohio. The Champion Cares Foundation is reaching out to its residents and asking them to round up their rent by $1 every month. Champion has chosen four local organizations to donate to on a quarterly basis. A single resident’s $1/month contribution will result in $12/year. You may not think $12 can make a big difference, however, if you take into account the number of apartments Champion owns, that $12 easily turns into more than $48,000 annually.
We are in this together. Champion will match, dollar for dollar, every $1 donation that is given to the Champion Cares Foundation. *Champion will gladly accept donations that are larger than $1, however, will only match $1 contributions from each Champion apartment.
Four great, local charities benefiting from your $1/month donation.
