Sponsor A Champion
You can make a difference in the life of a child through our Sponsor A Champion Program. You will be personally matched with a child who will have the opportunity to get to know you, write you and treasure the thought that you care! The cost is just $30 a month (or a one time annual gift of $300). We ask sponsors to commit to sponsoring a child for a minimum of one school year. As a sponsor, you will receive quarterly updates on your sponsored child. This will include a short note from your child as well as updates on their tennis and academic progress. Most sponsors and ‘champions’ enjoy together time during our annual end of the year Sponsor-A-Champion BBQ. Sponsors are also welcome to arrange a visit during our TnT program. To sponsor a child, download a sponsor a champion brochure or donate on-line now.
