The Champion Model

One World champions raise funds for our grassroots partners. The Champion Model works. People who have never fundraised before, or never considered themselves philanthropists, have achieved incredible results, raising more than $7 million for children around the world. As we speak, they are supplying resources to build schools, funding vaccination programs, feeding, housing and educating street kids, educating girls in rural village, and getting at-risk teens into vocational training.

It is a personal and effective answer to global philanthropy. One World Champions know the children, staff, community members that they serve. Their stories inspire them to partner for the long term. Click on each partner profile below to learn more and support their amazing work.
