The Champions Fund (TCF) is a Florida based 501(c)3 national public charity comprised of professional athlete and sport-related donor advised funds.
With clients representing most major professional sports leagues, including but not limited to the NFL, NHL and NBA, TCF works with each client providing them with the opportunity to determine his/her own charitable initiative, board of advisors, foundation manager, annual operational budget and program of work.
We approach each prospective donor client individually, customizing a philanthropic program to best fit the client’s charitable interests, desire scope and length of program, and ability to give.
TCF offers all aspects of foundation management under one umbrella and offers the added advantage of having the ability to create and execute community outreach programs in any community, whether local, national or even international in scope. Regardless of program size or scope, our clients will still benefit from the full talent and collaboration of our entire team.
Roman Oben, NFL Director of Youth and High School Football, is well aware of the influence a professional athlete can have in his local community. He annually hosts a football camp for kids, donates meals to needy families and regularly speaks at area schools. Thanks to an NFL Grant, Oben was able to work with West Ottowa High School (Michigan) to install and network between 2,300 and 2,500 computer stations in Cameroon, his native country.
