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.
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 Mixer. Sponsors are also welcome to arrange a visit during our TnT program.
The cost is just $35 a month (or a one time annual gift of $325). We ask sponsors to commit to sponsoring a child for a minimum of one school year.
