Champion is the leading expert in the U.S. and Canada in conducting major fundraising events for schools, Christian ministries and select nonprofit charities. Our founder helped pioneer our specialized industry in 1990, and no other individual in the country has served this industry as long.
Currently, we bring our client partners the experience from over 2,600 major fundraising events that have been conducted throughout 48 states and Canada. Impressively, these events have raised over $100,000,000 ($100 million) to date.
Most of our client partners actually set their historical fundraising records on their first Champion event. Many of these organizations have been in operation for 40-50 years, and some have set their 100-year fundraising records with Champion.
We use the excitement and energy of major events to convert your supporters into actual fundraisers. The process is fun and easy for your participants, and your funding comes from their personal fundraising efforts as well as corporate sponsors, underwriters and other sources.
The methods, tools and technologies we bring to our client partners are best-in-class in our industry, and our financial results show the extraordinary proof of how well they work. From small Christian schools and youth sports clubs of less than 100 students that are raising over $100,000 per event – to larger organizations that are raising over $200,000 and $300,000 per event – we can show you how to mobilize your supporters to raise major money in just 90 days.
Champion has innovated some of the most successful major fundraising event concepts in the United States in the past two decades – including Golf & Walk Events, Top Gun Challenge Sporting Clay Shoots and Feed The Need Events.
In addition to conducting major fundraising events, we also provide Growth Coaching (Strategic Consulting Services) that can help you drive long-term growth and funding. We have a seasoned team of consulting experts who can walk you through a simple process to help your organization make strategic shifts that can lead to a stronger and more successful future.
The purpose of our strategic consulting services is to help you move your organization beyond the 12-Month Cycle of Survival to true financial sustainability and growth. Sustainability and growth only happen through strategic planning – defining a strategic Master Plan based on real-life best practices and aligning all of your organization’s human, technological and financial resources behind this plan.
For many people, the world is a hard and difficult place. Christian ministries, schools, camps, youth sports clubs, community nonprofits – these are the great life-changing organizations that help people and make our country good. These are the organizations that shine like lights in the dark and bring help to people in need. Champion’s heart is all about people. We’re here to help you help more people. Our passion is to serve organizations like yours that are already making a difference and to help them fund their missions at a higher level for greater impact.
To us, the real heroes are not organizations but people – those special people behind the organizations that make a difference. These men, women and youth are the true change-makers in our world. These are the people – maybe you are one of them – who are part of an epic story with a great mission, but they are facing big challenges that can only be overcome with money and a helping hand.
Take the small school of 50 students with an annual budget deficit of $20,000 – that now is bringing in $50,000 a year through a Champion major fundraising event. Or take the small three-staff-member Christian ministry in Pennsylvania that helps Amish and Mennonite families – that is now bringing in over $100,000 a year through Champion.
Your story is important to us. Are you facing big challenges? Do you need significant funding to take your organization to the next level? We can help!
Our mission is to champion worthwhile organizations to achieve greater mission impact through strategic fundraising and growth consulting. What does this mean for you?
